The Bengals signed Larson after the ’04 draft, and the decision has paid dividends, as the Nebraska product has improved in all three NFL seasons. Larson, 26, is coming off his finest season. Larson averaged 44.5 yards on 77 punts, with 26 being downed inside the 20. Larson’s net average of 38.6 yards was tied for fourth-best in the NFL. Larson, who signed the Bengals’ restricted free-agent tender in April, is hard at work this offseason, continuing to hone his technique. Larson told PFW he’s working on his footwork and his drop height; ideally, Larson said, he’ll drop the ball “a little bit above (my) right hip.” Larson, who said he would like to stay in Cincinnati beyond this season, praised special-teams coach Darrin Simmons for his teaching. “He’s really brought me a long way in terms of my punting technique,” Larson said.http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/The+W...hispers2203.htmA source close to the Bengals says Tab Perry likely rates a slight edge over Antonio Chatman in the competition to take the No. 3 WR role, which will be vacated by Chris Henry as he serves an eight-game suspension to start the ’07 season.
