The Cincinnati Bengals’ 2015 season starts this Sunday; let’s get excited! And with an abundance of talent on their roster, the Bengals figure to contend once again in 2015. The roster is so loaded, in fact, that there are five players who could potentially make the Pro Bowl for the first time in their respective careers. Andy Dalton, A.J. Green, Andrew Whitworth, Kevin Huber, Geno Atkins and Vontaze Burfict have already made the Pro Bowl, so they aren’t qualified for this list (although they could all potentially have some big seasons as well).
There are some honorable mentions on the Bengals’ roster who are long shots for a first Pro Bowl bid but still have a small chance; these players are Tyler Eifert, Adam Jones (as a kick/punt returner) and Giovani Bernard. But like I said, these guys are long shots for the Pro Bowl. Here are the five guys who have a chance to make the Pro Bowl for the first time in their careers.
