One spot ahead of Dunlap is Darqueze Dennard, the only tougher decision than Dunlap this next offseason. Dennard is playing on his fifth year option this year at $8.5 million. After that, he will be an unrestricted free agent, as well. Dennard had a slow start to his Bengals career, but he came on very strong last year. He was a team leader in tackles and interceptions, and had fantastic advanced analytics. He should own opposing receivers again this year in the slot, making his $8.5 million a solid contract. However, his future in Cincinnati is definitely uncertain with his potential to garner a huge contract next offseason.
