The way Anthony Collins is playing right now, it’s hard to see the Cincinnati Bengals being able to re-sign him this offseason. According to Pro Football Focus, Collins has yet to allow a sack or hit this season. His Pass Blocking Efficiency is one of the best for left tackles although he has only played in 526 snaps.

As of now, here are all of the players set to hit free agency:

Withe the Bengals projected have somewhere between $21-25 million in cap money to spend this offseason, it’s going to be hard for the team to re-sign him outside of some players re-negotiating their contracts to free-up cap space next year.

This is assuming unfortunately that defensive end Michael Johnson is gone. He’s playing at a level that will likely land him a contract likely bigger than the six-year, $40 million deal Carlos Dunlap inked this summer.
