The Cincinnati Bengals made a huge splash in free agency the past two years and it's paid off. The team has been so close to winning a Super Bowl in each of the last two seasons and they'll likely make some moves to remain as top-tier contenders.
Last offseason, right out of the gate, the Bengals signed Alex Cappa and then Ted Karras a few hours later. That was in the hopes of majorly improving their offensive line.
