Bengals safety doesn’t care what people think of team


Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka is still 6-foot-4, 225 pounds heading into his sixth NFL season and fifth as a starter, but he made it known Tuesday after OTA practice he has undergone a transformation this offseason.

Iloka, who is one of the more active Bengals on social media, has never been one of those players who claims he doesn’t read and listen to what the media say about him and the team. And he said he’s sick of the team being painted with a broad brush.

“People tee off on our team sort of as a whole because incidents here and there and labeling all of us,” Iloka said. “My attitude has changed to where it’s us and, excuse my language, but (forget) everyone else. It don’t matter what they think come Sunday.

“I couldn’t care less what the outside world thinks of us as players,” he added. “I know who we are as players, and I know who I am as man. I just kind of switched into it like, they can feel how they want to feel. It is what it is. I’m going to keep doing me and we’re going to keep doing us and try to get better and try to get to the Super Bowl.”
