Cincinnati Bengals players to watch

1. Chidobe Awuzie

Chidobe Awuzie may not see much playing time in the first preseason game. Still, being one of the newly acquired defensive pieces after agreeing to a three-year deal with the Bengals this offseason means he will be a centerpiece to the starting defense.

So far, his stellar performance in camp has been raved about, which is all things you want to be hearing. Even if he only plays one or two series, it will be intriguing to see what he does line up against Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, or Antonio Brown, considering the Bucs’ plan on playing all of their starters.

Regardless of what we end up seeing for playing time from Awuzie, keep an eye on his play. Fans will be seeing a lot of him on our defense this season and it is important for the newcomer to set the tone early.
