What are the long term prospects for the Cincinnati Bengals? As of now, all fans and watchers can do is wonder out loud about the possibility of Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, and Justin Herbert. In Colin Kaepernick, they would actually check a lot of boxes when it came to a shopping list for a quarterback. It also doesn’t mean that they can’t draft a QB in 2020, and likely still in the first round.
Let’s be candid, the Bengals are a bad football team. It happens. For reasons that are well documented, Mike Brown has taken his eye off of this franchise, and this is the end result. He can also fix it by demonstrating some football and professional courage and make a bold statement by signing a quarterback who has actually won beyond the regular season.
Don’t get me wrong, signing Kaepernick is a tricky proposition. You get what you get with him. However, the upside is a proven track record when it counted. Bringing him to Cincinnati would also prove that this organization still wants to win and doesn’t only want to talk about it. Talk is cheap, and with the Bengals, it’s in the midst of a fire sale. They lack a lot of professional integrity with how they have conducted business in a profoundly dismal season.
Kap is a lot of things. If you look at his record. He’s also a winner. Something the Cincinnati Bengals are not.
