Predicting Bengals final 53-man roster reveals major improvement
By Aaron Burd
With the offseason coming to a close, it’s time to start looking at who will be on the Cincinnati Bengals’ final 53-man roster.
Now that the NFL Draft has passed, the most exciting part of the offseason is in the rearview mirror. At this point, it’s just a waiting game for football activities to start. In the meantime, the focus shifts to examining who will make the Cincinnati Bengals’ final roster.
The 2020 squad will be drastically different from the 2019 iteration of the Bengals. Such a seismic shift of personnel was absolutely necessary after the team limped to the worst record in the league.
The front office brought in 6 big-time free-agents, all expected to play large roles in their first season in stripes.
Of course, Cincinnati is set to soon welcome their 7-man draft class as well. Joe Burrow, Tee Higgins, and Logan Wilson will all be expected to contribute heavily to begin their NFL forrays. It also wouldn’t be a surprise to see guys like Akeem Davis-Gaither and Khalid Kareem take the field fairly often in year one.
As optimism fills the air in the Queen City, let’s take a look at what the Bengals are working with at each position group.
