What will happen during the course of the Cincinnati Bengals’ offseason? Here are three bold predictions for the stripes’ 2022 offseason. 

Bold prediction articles are so fun to write. I don’t have to be right, but if for some reason I hit on one of three, I’m a freaking genius.

It doesn’t matter how outlandish they are, in fact, the bolder the better. Anyone can do a “three predictions” piece, but you have to bring the bold. What better time to do that than during an offseason after a wholly unexpected Super Bowl run?

Even the most casual fan knows exactly where the team needs to improve. With even a slightly improved offensive line, the Lombardi Trophy would be sitting in Paul Brown Stadium on the banks of the lovely Ohio river instead of in Los Angeles, where most people scarcely care about anything more than themselves, no less Ram football.

So here we are, Bengal faithful, and if you are still following, you are to be commended, as you are truly the faithful. Hardcore fans don’t just move on to the WNBA after the Super Bowl. Hardcore fans keep reading articles like this, checking on free agency, and following the draft. Being a Bengal fan is a 24 hour a day, 365 days a year obsession.

With that in mind, let’s look at three of my boldest predictions for the offseason. I may not hit on all three of these. Hell, I may not even sniff one! However if the Bengals can accomplish at least one of these scenarios, I feel confident this time next year a certain trophy will be on Mike Brown’s mantle.

Will I take credit for any of it? Of course not, but rest assured I’ll be reminding anyone that will listen of any accurate predictions I make!
