Bengals Rumors: Andre Smith, Keenan Robinson Reportedly Visit Cincinnati

The Cincinnati Bengals reportedly brought offensive lineman Andre Smith and linebacker Kennan Robinson in for visits Monday, per Adam Caplan of ESPN.

Caplan noted the team sees Robinson as a potential outside linebacker.

Dan Duggan of NJ.com noted Robinson was on the field for 71 percent of the New York Giants‘ defensive snaps during the 2016 season and played all 16 games, which was a marked improvement after he missed 28 games in four seasons for Washington.

Robinson finished with 109 combined tackles in 2014 and 83 last season and is known for his athleticism and ability to drop back into coverage. He has just 1.5 sacks in his career but could bolster a Cincinnati defense that was a middling 17th in the league in total yards allowed per game in 2016 by covering running backs and tight ends on passing routes.

As for Smith, he represents a familiar name for Bengals fans. Cincinnati selected him with the No. 6 overall draft pick in 2009, and he played with the team through 2015 before joining the Minnesota Vikings.

Cincinnati’s offensive line has taken some hits this offseason after Andrew Whitworth signed with the Los Angeles Rams, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, and the Cleveland Browns announced they signed Kevin Zeitler.

Football Outsiders ranked the Bengals offensive line as the 14th-best run-blocking unit and 26th-best in pass protection last season, and that was with Whitworth and Zeitler as two anchors. Their departures create a pressing need for depth, and Smith could answer that call as a veteran presence even though he played just four games last season.

The custom bike on display in Salt Lake City

Have you ever tried riding a bike while carrying a bottle of wine or a six-pack of beer? Well, apparently it ain’t easy. That’s why in 2015, cyclist Rob Simon contacted Shamrock Cycles’ Tim O’Donnell about building him a bicycle that could do the job. O’Donnell really went to town on the project, creating a bike with a bunch of interesting features. We checked it out last weekend, at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show.

Watch What a Day in the Life of an Internet Troll Looks Like

In the age of the Internet, it’s seemingly easier than ever to provide insight — or at least an opinion, rather — to virtually any given topic. More so, there is a growing number of individuals who simply like to ruffle feathers surrounding various matters a la Internet trolls.

This new piece from The Guardian delves into just that, the life of an Internet troll. Director Kyrre Lien in turn met a global group of strongly opinionated people, those who spend much of their time debating online on the subjects they care most adamantly about. But do these individuals behave in the same way when they come offline?

Governor Christie Declares State Of Emergency For New Jersey Ahead Of Winter Storm

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Governor Chris Christie has declared a state of emergency for the Garden State ahead of the anticipated major winter blast.

A blizzard warning is in effect for Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic and Union counties.

Parts of New Jersey could get some of the highest snow totals in our area, with some people preparing for up to two-feet of snow.

Folks in Morris County are ready for the worst, and their biggest priority is food shopping.

“It’s crazy, it’s so crowded,” shopper Marita Gilbert tells CBS2’s Meg Baker. “The line is so long and everybody is buying everything afraid the storm will last forever.”

“Tomorrow I’m going to stay inside all day,” Morristown resident Vince Walters said.

More than a foot of snow is forecast in some parts of the state, along with wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour. The snow is expected to begin late Monday and snow is forecast to continue until Tuesday evening.

Some Morris County seniors gathered at a local community center not only to enjoy lunch but to make sure they had a hot meal for the impending blizzard. County officials also went door to door with food.

“This morning due to the fact that the storm is coming we ordered double meals,” county nutritionist Ophelia Cruse said. “2100 Meals went out to home bound clients.”

Public works crews have already started treating the roads and loaded their trucks with salt. Gov. Christie said that public and private snow removal trucks are getting ready for Tuesday’s storm. He says that the state’s salt supply is at 75 percent of its capacity because of the mild winter.

“We’re doing all the things that we normally do to get ready for a storm,” Christie said. “The plows, the salters, the sanders — they’re all ready to go.”

Jeffrey Paul of the Morris County EMS says it’s best to stay off local roads so emergency vehicles can work without impediment.

Residents in the rest of the state are getting ready. 

Down in Monmouth County, officials are warning residents not only about the snow, but of the potential flooding brought on by a full moon, high tide, and strong winds.

“It’s expected to be a major winter storm with coastal flooding and is a big concern for Monmouth County,” county Sheriff Shaun Golden said Monday. “Particularly during Tuesday morning’s high tide. If we all heed to the warnings and pay close attention to the storm’s impact, we should get through this without incident.”

In Belmar, temporary sand berms were put into place to serve as a last line of defense from storm flooding, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported. The six or seven-foot-high mounds are expected to keep the ocean from reaching the street.

“Ever since Sandy we fully prepare for a storm like that,” Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty said.

“I have cookies, crackers things that we don’t have to cook if the gas goes. Dry cereal, milk we could just put outside it’ll be so cold,” said Carlstadt resident Jeanette Saez.

Chris, who grew up in Poland, had a more optimistic view.

“Funny thing is, milk and bread is flying from the shelves, but it’s still winter, come on,” he told 1010 WINS’ John Montone. “In probably next two, three months, we’re going to complain that it’s going to be too hot.”

Coastal flood warnings are also in effect.

Bugatti’s Insane $2.2 Million Yacht Is Perfect for Floyd Mayweather

Visit the original post to see all 13 images from this gallery.

When you’re a Bugatti enthusiast and — well — rich as shit, how could you further round out your collection of toys? Easy, with an insane $2.2 million USD yacht from none other than Bugatti.

The “Niniette 66” is in turn the first in a series, ranging from 50 to 80 feet in length. Decked out in titanium, carbon fiber and Bugatti’s trademark blue, the super yacht welcomes a number of the manufacturer’s familiar engineering traits, such as an accentuated center line, symmetry, and a sweeping signature curve.

While cruising along at a modest 50 miles per hour, the vessel is chock-full of luxury amenities. The deck, done up in leather and blue morta oak, is then paired with a lower deck which is referred to as the “sun pad,” then calling home to a champagne bar as well as a jacuzzi. And if you’re still feeling a bit frigid after a dip, not only can you take advantage of the jacuzzi, but you can also warm up by the fire pit — because — why not?

For a closer look at Bugatti’s otherworldy $2.2 million USD Niniette 66 super yacht, see the gallery above.
