Who: Jon Kitna

Position: QB

Height: 6-2

Weight: 220

College: Central Washington

How acquired: Unrestricted free agent (2001) Seattle

Background: Revived dormant offense in final 12 starts in 2002. Highly respected team leader now in third Bengals training camp but working as undisputed starter for the first time.

Favorite movie: Anything with Denzel Washington

Why: "I'm a big Denzel fan, but I'm not a guy who watches movies over and over again. I watch them one time and that's it."

Favorite book: The Bible

Why: "But if I had to pick a normal book that other people would think, I'm reading Bringing Up Boys by James Dobson, and it's been great."
