Paul Brown Stadium gets new field


It's out with the old and in with the new as a brand new field is being put down at Paul Brown Stadium.

The new field is made of the same materials as the old one. It is a synthetic carpet filled with rubber and sand. The only difference between the new field and the old one is the Bengals "B" will be replacing the tiger in the center of the field.

Officials say synthetic grass makes more sense for the venue.

"It saved incredible on maintenance," said Bob Bedinghaus, "It also allowed us to put a lot more events in here, concerts, monster trucks. By having this artificial surface it really opens up all of this for PBS."

The project is expected to be completed by the end of April.
