With the salary cap estimated to be around $170-$190 million roughly, the Cincinnati Bengals are in prime position to sign big name free agents who can come in and help this underachieving team live up to expectations. The last off-season the Cincinnati Bengals Front Office opened their wallet and spent big on free agents and in the first year, it back fired.
After seven seasons in Atlanta, the Falcons released safety Ricardo Allen last week in an effort to clear up cap space for the new league year.
Defensive tackle is quietly one of those areas the Cincinnati Bengals will need to address this offseason. The team could do this through free agency and the draft, of course. That, or they could leverage some assets and acquire a proven player on a known, affordable contract via trade with a team in need.
