As the Bengals franchise continues forward on an uncertain path, the quarterback position is one the team must aim to improve.
The Cincinnati Bengals are in a bit of a conundrum heading into this offseason. Starting quarterback Andy Dalton is returning from a torn ligament in his throwing hand. He’s entering the final two years on his 6-year deal, but he can be moved with no dead cap. The Bengals would save 33.9 million if they moved on from Dalton this off-season. They currently have projected cap space of 50.4 million per over the cap. What is the best option heading into this season? Holding onto Andy Dalton and seeking his replacement through the NFL Draft is the best option. With that being said, let’s take a look at the NFL Draft prospects the Bengals would be wise to pursue.
