The Bengals are getting new uniforms this offseason. The reveal is expected to take place in April. There have been plenty of designs made over the past few months, but this might be the best.
Pro Football Focus data scientist Timo Riske looked at every club’s last four draft classes and the total Wins Above Replacement (WAR) above expectation from all four classes. The Bengals are 28th, or fifth-worst, in the entire NFL from a total WAR perspective. Calculating rankings via this methodology will skew results favoring teams that drafted good quarterbacks, hence why the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, and Houston Texans are all in the top five.

Watt signing with the Arizona Cardinals instead of a team in the AFC North, plus the latest on DJ Reader's recovery and USA Today's Doug Farrar stops by to discuss defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo's scheme, the Bengals' offensive line and so much more!
