Matt Williamson of ScoutsInc. takes a look at some cornerbacks and writes that the Bengals have the best duo in the entire league. I think he might be right and I hope Mike Brown and the rest of the front office are making an effort to re-sign both. With Jonathan Joseph and Leon Hall locked up long-term, the Bengals have a chance to be an elite defense for years to come. But I fear that the team is already making some moves (signing Mr. Adam Jones, drafting Brandon Ghee) to prepare for letting one of them walk. Don’t do it. Don’t. Do. It. Which means the team probably will.
It’s also interesting to note that Williamson believes defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer might blitz quite a bit this season. And I think he should. With the addition of Mr. Jones, who should be a very solid nickel corner, Cincinnati’s secondary should be able to blanket just about any receivers.
