    There is no argument that can justify it that I can't completely blow out of the water.
    I'd rather sign two guys who are still average guards like Zeitler and Norwell for the same money it would take to sign a Thuney. If the Bengals could roll out a line of Sewell, Norwell, Hopkins, Zeitler, Williams, it wouldn't be a top 5 line but we wouldn't have to worry about Joe getting killed.

    BJ Finney was released. This gives them another 3.2 in cap money.

    The Panthers are expected to franchise tag OT Taylor Moton. That'll be one less good offensive lineman available in free agency.

    The Offensive Line Free Agency is flooded this time. The opportunities to get two good Guards for a total of $10M over two years ($2.5M per Guard per season) is there for the pickings, especially with very few teams having much money to spend. What little money they do have isn't going to be spent on Guards. For the Bengals to overpay, they'd have to bid against themselves, which of course, they've done several times in the past.

    Also, from NBC Sports w/ NBC Sports' comments:

    Bengals released C B.J. Finney. The move saves $3.3 million against the salary cap. Cincinnati acquired Finney in the trade that sent Carlos Dunlap to Seattle. Finney played just one game for the Bengals in 2020. The Bengals, as usual, are among the teams with the most cap space headed into free agency.

    Yes. It's why I hate texts, I don't like phone calls, and I don't like emails. It's why there are so many stupid arguments on this website and others, because with only words to look at, very little of the message's original meaning is understood. Then it gets compounded with dolts trying to tell someone what they said (instead of listening to what they are saying now) by posting words from a previous post, as if that's proof of the meaning. It's tough enough when you are face-to-face, but it's nearly impossible in any social media communication.

    The eternal optimist in me wants to believe the Dolphins trading peanuts for Isaiah Wilson takes them out of the Sewell sweepstakes, but I'm probably wrong.

    So what are the odds that the Bengals end up franchise tagging nobody?

    Considering relative disadvantages of using the tag, 50/50.
    Well, that's what those words mean. He was here. If they don't keep him, he will have been lost/subtracted. I headed out the door today with two shoes on my feet. If I don't return with them, I have lost them. If I do return with them, I haven't added them. ---M2

    I think they will tag Lawson but won't be surprised if they don't.

    Paul Dehner is reporting that they aren't franchising anyone. I think I would have tagged Lawson. This is risky on their part

    Bengals signed Brandon Allen to a 1-yr contract.

    Good, inexpensive (hopefully) FA move. I assume we keep Finley, too, with a 17-game season and our Franchise player for the next 10 years coming off of major surgery. Nobody new to learn the system, but there's a ton to learn as it is for a number of reasons (hopefully, a revamped Offensive Line).
