Green did in his second game as a pro in the preseason and it stunned him. The Green-Dalton connection never got off the ground in the opener in Detroit and the next week Green found himself going against Revis.

“I remember I was so freaking nervous going up against Darrelle as a rookie,” Green said. “I just ran a slant and made him slip. And I didn’t even catch the ball. I dropped it! I don’t even remember what happened, I just dropped the ball. I was very surprised. It was fun, though. It was definitely an eye opener. My eyes were so wide out there, my first game, going against one of the best cornerbacks that ever played.

Bengals all-time passing leader Ken Anderson is at it again as he huddles up his teammates and leads them into an evening of reminiscing at the Boathouse on Sept. 25 immediately following the 1 p.m. Bengals-Broncos games at Paul Brown Stadium.

The Bengals thought enough of Driskel that they used their first Opening Week waiver claim in five years to pluck him after the 49ers cut him. But this is nothing new for the Bengals when it comes to backup quarterbacks.wholesale jerseys

Nine years ago, on the same day, the day after the cut to 53 players, the Bengals traded for the man they oppose this Sunday in New York (1 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12), Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. They ended up giving the Rams a 2008 seventh-rounder to find Carson Palmer’s backup for 2007 and 2008.

Dawson arrived as advertised out of Texas Christian. An instinctive player at linebacker on Sundays who struggles with inconsistencies during the week, Dawson was a mystery scratch for the third pre-season game in Jacksonville last week but came back with four tackles and a fumble recovery that halted the Colts’ first drive of the game in Thursday’s pre-season finale.

It’s the first time the Bengals have cut a third-rounder heading into only his second season since Wake Forest cornerback Brandon Ghee in 2011. It’s believed they’ll do what they did then and sign Dawson to the practice squad Monday if he clears waivers.

On Tuesday they released their primary punt and kick returner of the last five seasons when they let go wide receiver Brandon Tate and relented to the relentless youth movement staged by rookie wide receivers Alex Erickson and Tyler Boyd in the return game.

They also mulled icing Pro Bowl special teamer Cedric Peerman for the season with a fractured left forearm that needs surgery. But special teams coordinator Darrin Simmons holds out hope Peerman could return at some point during the season with a fracture he said is believed not to be complicated by ligament or elbow damage.

In order to get down to 75 players by Tuesday at 4 p.m., the Bengals also ended the rookie season of fourth-rounder Andrew Billings (knee) when they put the Baylor defensive tackle on injured reserve. They waived injured one draft pick, 2015 seventh-rounder Mario Alford (ankle), virtually ending the wide receiver’s season. As expected, defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (ACL) went on the physically unable to perform list (PUP) and is eligible to return to practice week seven and the Oct. 23 game against the Browns.

They also waived kicker Jonathan Brown, but since he had been injured he didn’t count and the Bengals are at 75 players heading into Thursday’s pre-season finale (7:30 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) against the Colts at Paul Brown Stadium.
