Free Agency is well underway and lots of teams are making noise this offseason and Bengals fans sit back and wait, and wait, and wait, to see what exactly the Bengals are doing. With recent signings of Adam Jones and Brandon Tate, it does seem like it’s the same old hum drum offseason for the Bengals, but don’t discount continuity. We seem to forget as fans that this team has had back to back winning seasons and back to back playoff appearances from a very young team. Of course improvements need to be made and just making the playoffs is no longer okay, but the Bengals really only have to worry about winning the AFC North, and free agency shows this should be the expectation.
The Ravens are coming off of a World Championship and just made their quarterback the highest paid QB in the NFL. All seems great in Ravens Country. Truth is,Baltimorefans should be a little concerned. With key losses on defense, and a huge loss at wide receiver in Boldin, the Ravens are really counting on the draft for success. With just about everyone wondering who is going to play linebacker, safety, and every down defensive end, it does seem like the Ravens defense might encounter rough waters in what is normally smooth sailing.
