  Bengals | Ryan Finley traded to Texans    Fri Mar 19, 01:56 PM

QB Ryan Finley on Friday, March 19, was traded by the Cincinnati Bengals to the Houston Texans. In exchange, the Bengals will move up an approximate spots late in the 2021 draft via an exchange of undisclosed draft picks.

Footballguys view: Finley was going to be released prior to the trade. When the Bengals selected QB Joe Burrow with the no.1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, they had no need for a young developmental quarterback like Finley.

  Texans | Ryan Finley acquired in trade    Fri Mar 19, 01:43 PM

QB Ryan Finley on Friday, March 19, was acquired by the Houston Texans in a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals. In return, the teams will swap undisclosed late-round picks in the 2021 draft. Finley was going to be released prior to the deal.

Footballguys view: Finley is a big-bodied pocket passer who should be seen as a developmental quarterback. The Texans have Tyrod Taylor as their starter if Deshaun Watson is traded, stays away from the team or is suspended. Finley will continue to develop but with a new team.

  Bengals | Brandon Allen out for Week 15    Sat Dec 19, 04:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen (knee) didn't practice Saturday, Dec. 19, and has been ruled out of the Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Dec. 21.

Footballguys view: Ryan Finley gets the start for the Bengals in Week 15. That means Fantasy GMs are downgrading all Bengals skill position players and upgrading the Steelers defense.

  Bengals | Ryan Finley to start Monday night    Sat Dec 19, 12:27 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley will start Monday, Dec. 21, in the team's Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with Brandon Allen (knee) ruled out with a knee injury Saturday, head coach Zac Taylor announced.

Footballguys view: There was some optimism that Allen would be able to play despite the injury. That's not the case and Finley will get the nod instead. Finley is a tall, strong-armed pocket passer but his accuracy and decision making are big issues. That means Fantasy GMs should downgrade any and all Bengals skill position players they might be considering.

  Bengals | Cincy happy with current QB situation    Sat May 9, 08:32 AM

The Cincinnati Bengals do not have plans to sign a veteran quarterback this offseason, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Starting quarterback Joe Burrow is 23 years old and backups Ryan Finley and Jake Dolegala are 25 and 23, respectively.

Footballguys view: Burrow is the franchise quarterback and has elite-level ability he should be able to show from day one. Sure, there are going to be some rough patches and learning curves for the rookie but he's certainly got the ability to eventually be one of the best passers in the game. Burrow is smart, more athletic than some would think and his pass-placement is uncanny with how precise he is. Behind him, Finley has a bit of starting experience and is fine as a reserve.

  Bengals | Ryan Finley doesn't do much in first start    Sun Nov 10, 04:24 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley completed 16-of-30 passes for 167 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding five runs for 22 yards in his first NFL start.

Footballguys view: Finley had a few throws to build on, but he is clearly a rookie and work in progress. He'll get an easier assignment against Oakland next week, but we will keep expectations low.

  Bengals | Ryan Finley named the starter    Tue Oct 29, 01:11 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley was named the starting quarterback Tuesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: The move to the rookie has been expected for some time now. Andy Dalton goes to the bench since the team isn't winning, and the Bengals get to take a look at Finley to determine whether or not he could continue to be a starter in the future. They are looking at a premium pick in the 2020 NFL draft and could be in the market for a premium passer. Finley is a big, tall, pocket passer with the arm strength to hit all throws required in the NFL.
