But, rest assured this letter will cover many of the Bengals social media outlets, local news on the team, and some off the field information regards to community involvement and partnering with other local Bengals neighborhoods around the greater Cincinnati area. Here are this weeks Top 5 headlines that you should know about.
1. The Bengals eyeing free agency signings.
For the Bengals, one problem that the team ran into this past season was failing to sign the right people and dealing with departures for more money from other teams. This year the Bengals are looking for experience, veteran leadership, and dynamic athletes.
Reports close to the team say the team doesn’t plan to pay a lot in free agency this year. The big dilemma the Bengals are faced with is bringing back that veteran leadership. With players like Andrew Whitworth and Domata Peko who are in their 30’s many wonder how many productive years they have left to give? Both have been great leaders for the team on both sides of the ball but the front office is left to wonder if it is time to move on.
2. Bengals preparing for upcoming draft.
After 6 consisstant years of making the playoffs the Bengals ended the 2016 season 6-9-1. The first losing record in 7 years. The Bengals now have the 9th overall pick in the draft and are looking to draft big. The last time the Bengals had a top ten draft pick they got wide receiver from Georgia, A.J. Green.
In Todd McShay’s Mock draft on ESPN.com he has the 9th overall pick in the draft being Marshawn Lattimore a cornerback from Ohio State University.
3. LB Trevor Roach retires at the age of 24.
Roach reported that his reason for retiring early is because he says, “I didn’t love football like I used too.”
4. Bengals claim rookie wide receiver from Dallas.
