|Lewis pegs Margus Hunt as part of renewed pass rush effort |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/25/14) Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said from the NFL Owners Meeting on Tuesday that second-year defensive end Margus Hunt will get in the mix to replace Michael Johnson as a starting pass rusher.
"We drafted Margus (Hunt) a year ago as part of that transition," Lewis told the official team website. "And we'll have other guys that step up. Wallace Gilberry had a great year last year. Robert Geathers comes back from injury. We'll be fine."
Hunt's relative inexperience is a concern. Per ProFootballFocus.com, Hunt played on just 165 snaps last year.
"Margus got some experience we didn't expect him to get," Lewis said. "All that is just great, no one is going to work harder at it than him. He just needs to continue to get time on task. ... It's a reactive game and he has to continue to have opportunities to react."

(9/29/13) The Bengals were without three key members of the defensive backfield in Week 4 against the Browns, based on their inactive list released Sunday. Defensive backs Leon Hall (hamstring), Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) and Reggie Nelson (hamstring) were all out of uniform as a result of their injuries.
The team also listed offensive linemen Mike Pollak and Tanner Hawkinson, running back Rex Burkhead and defensive end Margus Hunt as inactive.
|Bengals reveal Week 3 inactives |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/22/13) The Bengals' list of inactives for Week 3 against the Packers includes defensive back Brandon Ghee (concussion), defensive back Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring), offensive lineman Mike Pollak (knee), offensive lineman Anthony Collins (knee), running back Rex Burkhead, defensive lineman Margus Hunt and wide receiver Ryan Whalen. Burkhead, Hunt and Whalen were healthy scratches.
|The Bengals chose defensive end Margus Hunt from Southern Methodist with a second round in the NFL draft. Hunt's an interesting story: He grew up in Estonia and went to SMU for track and field. But he joined the football team in 2009 when the school dropped track and field. He's a beast, standing at a whopping 6-foot-8 and 277 pounds. Better yet he ran a 4.53 in the 40-yard dash. He totaled 11 sacks over his final two years in school and set an NCAA record with 17 blocked kicks (10 field goals, seven extra points). Characterized by CBSSports.com College Football Insider Bruce Feldman as the biggest athletic "freak" in college football, Hunt is a project pick for the Bengals, someone they can take their time to develop. If Ziggy Ansah was on the fast track to the pros after barely playing football, Hunt's taking the scenic route. In time he could develop into an incredible defensive lineman but for now we suspect his playing time will be minimal -- except on special teams where he'll probably block a few kicks. Hunt's worth a late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a mid- to late-round pick in rookie-only drafts. (Updated 5/15/13) |
