Ideal 2013 Offseason
Resign our own players: Free Agents
M Johnson- MUST SIGN, just scratching the surface
A Smith- MUST SIGN
Adam Jones- Keeps getting better, adds depth
Newman- Had solid year, Zimmer loves him
T Howard- Hopefully healthy, put at WLB
Gilberry- Was a great pickup for us, perfect fit
Hawkins- Speed weapon, another option
Clark Harris- Obviously a must
Sims- Depends on Still and B Thompson, plus price
Geathers- Leader, sign if cheap enough. Could draft replacement
Crocker- 1 year cheap contract, adds depth
J Brown- He deserves to be brought back, earned it.
Peerman/Miles/Skuta/- ST studs, adds depth all around
Sands- Needs more time to develop
Players not brought back:
2013 NFL Draft:
1. Alec Ogletree ILB Georgia
2a. Kenny Vaccaro SS Texas
2b. Da'Rick Rogers WR Tenn Tech
3. Montee Ball RB Wisconsin
4. Devin Taylor DE South Carolina
5. Tyrann Mathiau CB LSU
6. Kerwynn Williams RB Utah St
6. Sean Renfree QB Duke
2 players with so called "red flags" with Rogers and Tyrann, but these 2 have elite level talent and the Bengals locker room can handle this with ease. Burfict is an example. Just read the scouting reports on these 2 players and see what I mean, Da'Rick would be perfect to pair with AJ, and Tyrann would provide us excellent CB depth, as well has give us game changing ability with returning kicks and punts. Bengals would be wise to take flyers on both talented players in this years draft.
Also I did not include any O Line help, BC with Whitworth, A Smith, Collins, Robinson, Cook, Wharton, Boling, and Zeitler, we should have plenty of depth until 2014. Plus I am sure we will bring in a vet OT in FA, or let Knapp have Roland's spot.
Montee Ball will be a star in the NFL, just watch. He is an incredible blocker and has soft hands out of the backfield, perfect fit for Gruden's offense. Yes he has one of the best offensive lines in the nation, but Ball is a stud.
Basically, we would end up with 4 starters, a rotation DE with Taylor, a starting KR/PR with the Honey Badger, a new back up QB and a gadget speed weapon with K Williams.
