3 trade targets that could help the Bengals make a playoff run
Bengals Potential Trades
1. Andy Isabella, WR/PR (Cardinals)
Bengals fans have noticed the lack of ability in the punt and kick returning this season. Darius Phillips has not looked all that comfortable returning punts, Cincinnati has put Trenton Irwin back there at times, and Brandon Wilson has not examined the same returning kick-offs.
Adding a cheap, quick player like Andy Isabella, who has experience doing both, could be more beneficial than people think. There are not many holes to fill but adding someone who could create a spark off a punt return for field position makes too much sense.
It doesn’t hurt the Bengals to add him, as he wouldn’t take any key snaps away from the key receivers, and the asking price wouldn’t be high at all. In addition, he could benefit the special teams in many ways for special teams coordinator Darrin Simmons.
If I’m the Bengals, this is a move you could make quickly, and for a cheap buy, that could be a vital addition as the season unwinds. Isabella hasn’t seen much playing time in Arizona because of their depth in the receiver position.
The Cardinals could be on the verge of moving him elsewhere before the Nov. 2 deadline. He’s still highly young as he was drafted in the 2019 NFL Draft out of UMass in the second round.
