QUEEN'S FEAST: In Cincinnati, Paul Dehner Jr. noted the Bengals "logged about 37,000 fans" overall for their 16 open training camp practices, which "averages out to 2,313 per practice." That includes the two "Family Day" Saturday practices inside Paul Brown Stadium where they "welcomed in about 15,000 between the two days." It also "includes 7,000 that showed up at West Carrollton High School in Dayton earlier this week." Take those two away and "you have about 15,000 over 13 sessions for an average of 1,150 for every practice on the fields West of PBS." That is "not a bad number and they stayed between 1,000 and 1,500 for about every practice" (CINCINNATI.com, 8/15).
COWBOY UP: In Dallas, Rainer Sabin noted the Cowboys' training camp in Oxnard, Calif., "attracted 50,591 people," which was "down from last year," when it drew 58,522.
