Bates taking experience, hunger into second year with Bengals

Sports

Last year on Jessie Bates Day at Snider, not a lot of people wanted his autograph. 

After completing his rookie year, that signature is a hot commodity. Bates was drafted in the second round by the Bengals and then had such an impressive year that he was in the conversation for defensive rookie of the year. 

Now, the former Panthers safety is using that experience and a renewed hunger to drive him into his second season in the NFL.
