Malcolm Jenkins

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.

    We have Andrew Withworth at LT and Boling will return at RG – we do not need FA OT and Collins with his big cap and we dont need M Jenkins- we have Nelson and Lloka and backup S Williams. I agree on Allen but if the price isnt too much. I think we need C- and A. Mack is priority for us. Also want new LB -Harrison is not an answer,and want CB in 1 st rd.

      Thank you so much for the feedback and your opinion. It is great to hear what people think and get feedback. I fully understand what we have, and don’t get me wrong, we have a lot of great prices. This was the Top 3 Agents that we would love to see in Stripes. All 3 of these guys also have playoff experience past the Wildcard round. That is really what it boils down to in my mind, we need impact players now, that have experience winning in the playoffs. It will be interesting to see as well because we need some strong depth and that is what all 3 guys will also bring. It is unlikely we sign all 3 or even one of these guys, but you can’t say that if we brought in just one of these guys in, they would not make an impact.
