Safety is another option the Bengals will look to solidify before the 2014 season. They very well could look to the draft for these positions, but free agency is a very viable option if a few players like Malcolm Jenkins is available at the start of free agency.
Malcolm is another Ohio State product that would be well received and has had plenty of success in New Orleans. He is a solid option to cover deep and was a member of the 2009 Championship Saints team.
The Bengals need more players on their roster who know how to win in the postseason, and Jenkins played the best football of his career in 2013 with 68 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions.
He could come in and play a major role in this defense, whether it be at safety, cornerback or splitting time between both positions in a similar way Chris Crocker and Taylor Mays did.
The Bengals have plenty of cap space to work with this offseason, but that may change if the sign A.J. Green to a long-term extension.
They could wait to draft any one of the positions opening in free agency. We will have to wait and see what Mike Brown does next, but it never hurts to dream a little.
