Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton said he knows that he needs to be more accurate with his deep passes and expects to show improvement in that area. 'I think there are times where I didnt get those throws. Thats one thing people have said about me since I was coming out of college. Im going to get better. I know I need to get better. Im going to make the improvement. I expect myself to make throws like that. I have to hit more throws down field. I also have to get better in other areas,' Dalton said.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said Tuesday, March 5, in a radio interview that QB Andy Dalton needs to improve in every phase, specifically his deep accuracy and touch. 'He's got a long way to go,' Gruden said. 'He's done some great things for a second-year quarterback, won a lot of games and thrown some good touchdown passes, but we feel like he has not come close to his potential. That's our job to get it out of him.'

The Cincinnati Bengals appear to be searching for a backup quarterback to QB Andy Dalton with QB Bruce Gradkowski headed for free agency this offseason. However, they don't want to push Dalton out of the starting role, so they are unlikely to use early draft picks on a QB. Bengals quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese will take a look at North Carolina State QB Mike Glennon, Florida State QB EJ Manuel, Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson, Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib and University of Miami QB Zac Dysert this week. Glennon has been receiving the most praise from evaluators, and they believe he might be in the best position to succeed immediately in the NFL.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton was sacked 46 times this season, the most sacks of a Bengals QB since QBs Akili Smith and Scott Mitchell were dropped 52 times in 2000. However, offensive coordinator Jay Gruden feels the offensive line improved as the season went on. 'This is going to sound asinine, probably, but I think from a protection standpoint, as far as protection and blitzes, we're as good as anybody,' Gruden said. 'A lot of the sacks were Andy stepping up and there were sometimes the pocket seemed collapsed. We need to work on that.'
