The Bengals’ 2018 schedule marks a pivotal season for veteran coach Marvin Lewis after back-to-back losing seasons in Cincinnati.
Cincinnati faces the usual tests in the AFC North against rivals Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Cleveland, but this is a year in which the Bengals will find out whether the franchise is built to contend for the division title. Cincinnati faces the NFC South and AFC South this year, which means half of the road games are against playoff teams from last season.
“He’s a killer,” Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown said of Middleton. “He’s made some extremely tough shots, and he’s comfortable making them. We kinda made it a little bit uncomfortable for him, and he’s worked for the baskets he’s got. And we gotta continue to make it more uncomfortable for him. … He’s a really good player. He’s a straight killer, and he’s experienced. He can really shoot the ball and make tough shots. We gotta really make it hard for him and keep making him uncomfortable. Hopefully we can wear him down.”
Richardson’s tweets have since been deleted.
A spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police confirmed that Richardson, who was driving a Mercedes SUV, was stopped in Loudoun County “because the vehicle did not have license plates displayed as required by Virginia law” and that he was cited “for failing to have the vehicle properly registered.”
Spokeswoman Corinne Geller said state police were notified of Richardson’s tweets later Tuesday and are looking into what happened.
“While no formal complaint has been filed, the Department is reviewing the matter, to include the trooper’s in-car camera footage of the traffic stop, to determine if the traffic stop was handled in accordance with state police policy,” Geller said.
Richardson signed a five-year deal worth up to $40 million at the beginning of free agency last month.
Edmunds can play inside or outside for the Bills and was considered by some the best at the position in this group.
