    Caldwell, Bobbie Williams, Pat Sims for sure. The rest….idk a lot of older guys that are passed their prime.

    Hope we can get some trench guys and some DB help. But disagreeing with you guys that are saying it’d be horrible to draft a RB early.

    Either way, watch out for the Bengals in the next coming years! WHODEY!

    Bengals need to try and keep Collins, Rucker, Fanene, Lawson, Nugent and I would say sign Donald Lee back. The guy made some great plays down the stretch and Gresham needs a Veteran influence. Lawson was superb and another year w the same core of LineBackers and we could be an even better D. As far as Rucker and Fanene they are great rotate guys to bring in plus it’s always great to have depth at this position. Also Fanene can play DT or DE which is a bonus in itself. Finally Collins needs to reup bc he has really came into his own. The Bengals need to get better and younger at the OL position and resigning him would be a good place to start.
