In Bengals news, who are the best players in the NFL? Also, who are the best free agents hitting the open market this spring?
Pro Football Focus released their list of the top 101 players in the league. We'll go more into that below but it shouldn't shock anyone that several members of the Bengals made the list, including one in the top 10!
Will the Bengals add any of the best pending free agents to their arsenal for 2023? They have some weaknesses that need to be filled but they have the cap space to fill those needs and add depth as well. It should be a fascinating offseason for the stripes.
