 3. More Production from the D-Line

The Bengals had problems getting pressure on the quarterback and making run stopping plays. The D-line underperformed and did not have the usual production of the year prior. Michael Johnson is getting old and has not been producing the last couple of years. He’s being overpaid and should be cut or restructured for sure if the Bengals plan to shore up the defense.

Free agency could have some defensive end talent that the Bengals may be able to get some sort of help from. Players like Jason Pierre-Paul, Andre Branch, and Jabaal Sheard could contribute immediately. The Bengals could bring them in and they would make an impact at the opposite defensive end spot with Dunlap. If they were to bring them in for rotation with Michael Johnson, they would provide great production with fresh legs every time on the field.
