Non-Bengal Free Agents

Recommended Posts

Dehner was recommending the Bengals trade John Ross to the Raiders for Gabe Jackson (their RG). They might go for that and Jackson is much better than any guard the Bengals have currently.

I’m kind of hoping we bring Whit back and plug him at LG or RT

That would be a perfect signing to me.

Part of me thinks the Bengals have to overpay to change the perception that they are cheap and free agents won’t want to come here. Hopefully next year we don’t have to

Yes, but I'd rather overpay top players, not JAGs. 

Top players were never gonna come to Cincy though. It’s a two way street

Indeed it is. But if the team changed the way they operate, they too could sign top talent by dint of paying the most.

Eh, I don't think so. They have to overpay because Cincinnati isn't an attractive place to play. If Burrow is as good as I think he'll be, it will be a lot more attractive within the next few years.

Reader is what I would consider a tier 1 free agent and we were able to convince him. Money talks. If we're willing to fork it over, they will come. We just haven't ponied up the dough in the past.

Foles traded to Chicago.  Seems it's really NE or bust at this point right?  We may have to cut Andy, that would be depressing.

San Diego might be an option for Andy.

I think they have their eyes on the draft.

I expected to early on, but all the talk made me think he had a market. Still, this tempers my hopes for a pick.

The other thing is Chicago only paid a 4th for Foles who is a Superbowl MVP.  So even if we trade Andy to NE, we aren't likely to get a 3rd or even 4th.
