In Bengals news, mandatory minicamp begins on Tuesday! Also, what will the Cincinnati Bengals' starting lineup look like in 2023?

The 2023 offseason is nearly in the books as we inch closer to the preseason games but next up is mandatory minicamp. This kicks off on Tuesday for the Bengals and gets us another step closer to the regular season.

Who might be starting for the Bengals in 2023? They didn't have a ton of turnover in the offseason though they did lose both of their starting safeties, unfortunately. The offensive side of the ball is pretty similar though Orlando Brown Jr. is joining the group, much to the delight of Bengals fans.

No surprises here and there honestly shouldn't be many surprises when it comes to the Bengals' starting roster for 2023. Jordan Battle might be able to beat Nick Scott out for one of the safety spots but that's probably going to be the only true spot up for grabs. Crazier things have happened though.
