5 Bengals players who might be finished in Cincinnati
With an off-season that promises plenty of change in the hopes of a rebuild, here are five Bengals players who may have played their last game for Cincinnati.
The Cincinnati Bengals may have more roster overturn this off-season than fans have grown accustomed to. After finishing the 2019 season with a record of just 2-14, Duke Tobin and Zac Taylor have made it clear they are serious about getting the players they need to turn things around in Cincinnati. While acquiring new players should be welcomed, it may mean long time fan favorites will be out the door.
With indications coming from the front office that they’ll be more active in free agency, there are several candidates who could become cap casualties to clear space. That’s never been a route Bengals brass has seemed to want to take, but this year there are several cases where cutting ties with a veteran makes too much financial sense.
The draft capital the team possesses also increases the likelihood that the players’ many fans have grown used to seeing in stripes may no longer be with the team moving forward. With the top pick in each round, the chances of finding prospects capable of displacing veterans are greater than in previous years.
After years of a conservative approach under Marvin Lewis, the city of Cincinnati should buckle up to see if the organization will stay true to their word and make the roster changes necessary to build a contender.
