The Rest: Clay Johnston, Joe Bachie, and Keandre Jones

Here’s where things could get shaken up depending on what happens in the draft. While these guys were all decent in what they were asked to do last year, we all know the NFL is a business, and if Cincinnati finds better options, it won’t matter what these guys contributed to the team in 2021.

Clay Johnston joined the team midseason and appeared in seven games. He put up 17 tackles during that time and should be able to make at least the practice squad this year.

Joe Bachie signed with Cincy last summer and ended up seeing the field quite a bit. He appeared in nine games and had 30 tackles. He’s someone who should make the team given what he was able to do but you just never know what’s going to happen.

Keandre Jones played in five games in 2021 and had three tackles. He’s been with the Bengals since the 2020 season.
