8. Ryan Jensen (Center)

The biggest area of concern for the Bengals entering the offseason is, without a doubt, the offensive line. No one from last year’s starting group is safe to be starting at their position in 2022 and that includes Trey Hopkins, who Cincinnati could save a significant amount of dough if they part ways with him.

Ryan Jensen is coming off his best year in the pros and has snapped the ball to Tom Brady the past two years. With Brady retiring, it’s doubtful that Jensen returns to Tampa Bay and the Bengals make perfect sense as a landing spot for him.

Jensen is absolutely a fit for the Bengals and out of everyone on this list, he’s probably the most likely top free agent to don the stripes in 2022 and beyond.

7. Rob Gronkowski (Tight End)

It’s funny because people keep saying that Rob Gronkowski isn’t the same player he once was yet he’s coming off a year in which he had 55 catches for 802 yards and six touchdowns despite missing five games. That doesn’t sound like a bad season to me.

Gronkowski has point-blank stated that he’s interested in playing with Joe Burrow so yes, he’s definitely a fit for Cincinnati in free agency. It’d be weird seeing Gronk catching passes from a quarterback not named Tom Brady but considering he put the Burrow stuff out there, we can’t rule out the Bengals signing him.
