With players due to report to Bengals camp Thursday, July 30, rookie TE and 3rd round pick Chase Coffman is very optimistic that he will be signed before camp opens.
"There is no way I am not going to be signed before we go into training camp," Coffman said during a recent phone interview. "I'm making it there the very first day if not a couple of days early. I'm getting in there and getting as much work as I can. That's one thing that can really set a rookie back is not making it into training camp on time. I'm letting my agents handle that part of the business and I will continue to focus on what I need to focus on."
