The Cincinnati Bengals have just 15 free agents hitting the market next month for the Jacksonville Jaguars to look at. But the vast majority of them are defenders, with four being members of a secondary that gave up 248.5 passing yards per game. That puts them just above the bottom-third of the league. Are there playmakers who individually did well, even if they gave up the 20th-most passing yards in the NFL?
Here are all the impending Cincinnati Bengals free agents, according to OverTheCap.com.
While Adam Jones and Reggie Nelson played well last year, they're both turning 33 this year and that's not the direction you want to go with guys who are looking for what will likely be the final payday of their career. Emmanuel Lamur and Vincent Rey underperformed last year. And Pat Sims is a rotational guy that wouldn't strengthen the Jaguars defensive line.
Wallace Gilberry is an interesting prospect, however. He'll be 32 this year, but according to ProFootballFocus.com, he racked up 33 quarterback hurries last year -- 10 more than any Jaguars player last year. If he can be brought in on the cheap and can be a rotational guy, why not?
