Cincinnati Bengals Roster – Linebackers (5)

  • Logan Wilson
  • Germaine Pratt
  • Akeem Davis-Gaither
  • Jordan Evans
  • Markus Bailey

This was another fairly easy position to figure out. Wilson is one of many players the Bengals are hoping to see a major breakout season from while Pratt and Davis-Gaither look to rebound after a shaky 2020 campaign.

Evans returns as the veteran presence at the position and that left one potential spot open. The Bengals could decide to cap the position at four but I opted to include Bailey, who was a monster during his years at Purdue. Injuries have held him back, but if he can stay healthy, there’s a good chance he becomes a fan favorite in Cincinnati.
