Jungle Noise News and Notes
Training camp hasn’t even started yet at Chad OchoCinco has made headlines several times already.
First Chad didn’t show up for OTA’S , then when he did show up he had two fake tattoos on his face, next he challenged Mike Golic, and San Diego Chargers LB Shawn Merriman to boxing matches after the season.
Now Chad OchoCinco says that he will tweet from the sidelines and locker room this year during NFL games.
However, the NFL already has a rule in place regarding this matter; let’s call it the Joe Horn rule.
The Joe Horn rule prohibits the use of cell phones, or other handheld mobile device in the bench area.
So this should put a rest to Ocho Tweet-O, that is until he comes up with his next gimmick.
Bengals ink draft picks
The Bengals inked Fui Vakapuna, their seventh-round draft pick according to Vakapuna agent David Lee.
Vakapuna becomes the fifth Bengals draft pick to sign this offseason, joining Freddie Brown, Morgan Trent, Bernard Scott, and Clinton McDonald.
The Bengals had 11 picks in this year’s draft, and still have to come up with deals for six first through fifth round picks. Including top prospects Andre Smith, and Rey Maualuga.
Rookie Symposium Beat Writer Michael Johnson
The Bengals talented third-round draft pick, Michael Johnson out of Georgia Tech was selected to give fans a daily report from the Rookie Symposium in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
The Rookie Symposium is the most covered business orientation in America; topics under discussion are financial planning, personal safety, warning on the dangers of alcohol and drugs, and other need to know items for new NFL players.
You can view all of Michael’s daily reports on Bengals.com, covering his daily schedule, speakers, and more.
Is the Season Sellout Streak in Jeopardy?
The Bengals have season tickets available for the first time since 2000, and they are working hard to get rid of them.
While it is my understanding that they only have 3000 season ticket packages available they have begun selling two- and four-game ticket packages.
They have two different four-game packages, and four different two game packages, it is good to see the FO get creative in trying to sell out the stadium and keep the sellout streak alive.
