This was final free agency wish.  Now onto the draft.  We lietrally can go anywhere with #33, depending on who slips to the pick

 

1.  Burrow

2.  Baun

3.  Isaiah Wilson

 

or throw a WR in there somewhere

Geez, this team is finally aggressive.  Addressed a lot of needs in FA, and after we draft Burrow can go BPA hopefully.  The OL is the most glaring issue that I see remaining...

All these guys we have been signing have all been plus run defenders.  Reader, Bell, Tynes, Mackensie, Waynes are all 70+ and 80+ run grade defenders in 2019

I don't understand the safety market.

Bell is a physical safety vs the run but not good in coverage. We could have used another LB or O-lineman for the money we're paying Vonn.

I don’t understand why we wouldn’t just keep him for that. Logical explanation: I just don’t think it was about the money for him. His brother died a few months back and  he fired his agent just a couple days later, I think he was ready for a change of scenery and you can’t hardly blame him there.


 

As far as the signing goes, you guys will like Bell if you use him correctly. He’s a run stuffer and a guy who can get to the QB in the blink of an eye, he’s got a knack for seeing lanes to the runner or QB and taking them. He’s a sure tackler and if he’s the 2nd or 3rd man to the play he’s got a knack for stripping the ball or scooping it up when someone else does.
 

Dude kinda sucks in coverage, there’s no nice way of saying it. But he’s a strong tackler, got good ball instincts, and is a smart player. Watch Deuce Windham talk about him on YouTube for more.

I like Bell a lot, he does kinda stink in coverage but he's a playmaker and great in the box. Bengals trying real hard to be my 2nd favorite team once they add the Louisiana Legend himself Jeaux Burreaux.
