The Cincinnati Bengals were the best team in the AFC a season ago and with these four players back on the field for the stripes in 2022, they should continue to be a major force in the conference. 

In the 2021 season, the Cincinnati Bengals managed to stay relatively healthy for the first time in quite some time, which played a major factor in the good guys making it all the way to the Super Bowl. While the end result wasn’t what we would have liked, fans enjoyed the ride, especially considering this team won just four games the season prior.

The four players I’m going to discuss today fall into two categories for the reigning AFC champions. One category is that the player was in the final year of their contract last season and was slated to hit free agency in the 2022 offseason. The other category is that the player was injured and couldn’t contribute as much to the team as fans would have liked.

Regardless of which category these players fall into, they’re back with the Bengals this year and ready to give their all to the team. The organization is thrilled to have these four players back ready to compete and help this team repeat in the AFC.
