Here's everything Bengals fans need to know about training camp this year.
When Does Cincinnati Bengals Training Camp Start?

Then, on Tuesday, July 26, Cincinnati's veterans are mandated to report for training camp. This gives just two weeks to prepare for the team's first preseason game on Aug. 12.

Bengals Training Camp News
One of the biggest stories heading into Bengals training camp is the status of safety Jessie Bates III. Though the talented defender isn't injured, Bates is looking for a contraction extension and reportedly won't play or even attend training camp until the issue is resolved.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there won't be a light at the end of the tunnel any time soon. Contract talks hit a snag last week and now media outlets have begun theorizing that Bates could be a potential trade candidate.
