Andre Caldwell hasn't been seen much in the preseason. In two games Caldwell has no catches. It is hard to figure what is going on with with Caldwell. Not long ago, Marvin Lewis said he was the most improved player. Now, he barely gets any game action.
Caldwell may not be getting action because:
- -The Bengals have to get Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens on the field to get the chemistry down.
- -Jordan Shipley needs to get game experience.
- -The rest of the receivers are fighting for a roster spot.
Many media pundits think Caldwell is a lock to make the squad. However, a closer look shows us that Caldwell is expendable. He can't do anything that Quan Cosby can't also do and Cosby brings special teams skills to the table. Jerome Simpson had a couple nice catches against the Broncos so he is in the mix. Matt Jones played well against the Cowboys and is a huge target. Caldwell may get into the flow soon enough.
His chance to stick may depend on Antonio Bryant.
