We pointed out earlier today that the Bengals will be working out Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder in his hometown of Dallas on Friday.

While in Texas, they’ll be working out another quarterback with ties to the Lone Star State.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Bengals will privately work out Texas Christian quarterback Andy Dalton on Friday, six days before the start of the draft.

Peter King of Sports Illustrated recently quoted an unnamed coach who observed that “[i]t’s getting very hard for [Bengals offensive coordinator] Jay Gruden to hide how much he loves Andy Dalton.”

Within the next nine days, we’ll find out whether Gruden loves Dalton enough for the Bengals to marry him.
