CINCINNATI — There's been plenty of chatter over the past few days about Ja'Marr Chase's slow start in training camp.
He's had drop issues and hasn't had the instant impact that most expected him to have when the Bengals selected him with the fifth overall pick in April's NFL Draft.
Despite starting slow, Bengals Director of Player Personnel Duke Tobin likes what he's seen from Chase.
"What we see is what we want to see," Tobin told Dan Hoard and Dave Lapham. "We see a physical guy that has strong hands, a guy that can extend the field vertically and then come in and out of cuts."
Chase didn't play last season and is adjusting to life in the NFL. He has the size, speed and strength to be productive right away. He might not be off to a scorching start, but no one on the Bengals' offense is having much success at the moment.
Joe Burrow has struggled. Tee Higgins has dropped passes. It's all part of camp.
Chase is expected to make his Bengals debut on Saturday night when Cincinnati travels to Tampa Bay for preseason game number one.
