"He throws the deep ball extremely well," Gruden told the Bengals' website. "He reads his progressions. He's made some outstanding throws and he can move in the pocket. He's very accurate." Hansen wasn't selected during the seven-round draft April 26-28, but he drew the interest of several NFL teams as a free agent. He nearly signed with the Oakland Raiders after the draft, but was persuaded to sign with the Bengals after getting a phone call from coach Marvin Lewis. While Andy Dalton seems locked into the Bengals' starting QB job after leading them to the playoffs as a rookie in 2011, they have openings for the backup and No. 3 jobs.

"I need to just be myself and learn," said Clemons. "I need to take all of the coaching, all of the criticism because it’s all positive to make you better. That and learn the playbook. That is my biggest thing, and the most important thing is taking the time to study the playbook. You have to grasp it. The better I know it, the faster I will play. I have to learn it and it will help me be successful."
