Lewis also was happy with the performance over the weekend of Rashad Jeanty, whom the team signed during the offseason. The former Central Florida defensive end had played three seasons in the Canadian Football League.

"With Rashad, it was his first experience with us," Lewis said. "He was such an addition for us this offseason. I'm anxious when we start playing real football to allow him to get going."

The Bengals plan to move Jeanty from defensive end to outside linebacker. Jeanty is 6 feet 2 , 235 pounds.

"He's a big, strong, fast guy," Lewis said. "We've spent a lot of time with him. He's been meeting with (linebackers coach) Ricky (Hunley) every day since we've had him. He's put in the time and effort. He's been one of the most explosive guys in the offseason stuff. You do see a guy who has played football. He has played in Canada for three years."
