Cincinnati Bengals: Offseason Rosterology


As the Cincinnati Bengals are preparing for the offseason, they’ll begin looking at all of their impending free agents, who they’ll re-sign and who they may look to sign when free agency opens to reach the roster limit of 90 players.

In 2012, the NFL expanded rosters for the offseason and preseason to 90 players from the previous limit of 80. That means once the Super Bowl concludes and the offseason sets in for every NFL team, then players signed to reserve/future contract will become part of the 90-man roster.

Teams are allowed to keep 90 players from now through training camp until the first cutdown in late August when it’s trimmed to 75.

Only the 51 highest-paid players count toward the salary cap.

The 90 players will include all active, inactive, practice squad, exempt and reserve list players, plus unsigned draft choices and franchise-tagged free agents.

As of now, the Bengals roster still consists of players set to free agency until March 11: At 4 p.m (ET) when the 2014 league year begins and all player contracts for the year 2013 expire.

Once that happens, depending on where the Bengals roster stands at that point, they can begin signing players until they get to around 80-83 players.

They’ll need to leave about seven roster spots open in order to sign all of their draft picks. With that being said, here is the Bengals’ roster as it currently stands:
