After never missing a game as a member of the Buffalo Bills, linebacker Preston Brown was only able to play in 7 games for the Bengals in 2018 and was a member of a truly embarrassing linebacker core. This was most likely just a down year for Brown and I expect him to rebound next season, but it’s easy to see how the Bengals may be somewhat cautious in structuring a new contract. With a whole new coaching staff coming in and the ability to add depth at the position in the draft and through free agency, I’m optimistic about the future of the Bengals defense. With that being said, Brown should be given the opportunity to emerge as a true leader on that side of the ball and he should be a key piece moving forward.
