    Cincinnati Bengals Offseason Thread: Protect Joe Burrow

    With the Super Bowl over and Burrow turning into the second coming of Andrew Luck here’s a thread to discuss FA and the draft.

    Upcoming free agent lineman.
    G- Alex Cappa
    G- Connor Williams
    G- James Daniels
    G- Laken Tomlinson
    G- Brandon Scherff
    C- Ted Karras
    C- Ryan Jensen
    LT- Terron Armstead
    LT- Orlando Brown JR

    Draft possibilities include:

    C-Tyler Linderbaum (will have to trade up)
    T-Bernard Raimann
    T-Trevor Penning
    G-Kenyon Green
    T-Darian Kinnard

    CB and D line are possibilities as well since Waynes is a likely cap casualty and BJ Hill and Ogunjobi are FAs.

    I'd like to see Jonah kicked inside to guard and the rest of the line turned over. Hopkins got better as he got further from his injury, but $7 million is too much for what he brings.

    I believe we'll all be happy with the starting line in Week 1, but I'm hoping the depth is better. When someone inevitably gets hurt you can't turn to someone as bad as Prince or Adeniji.

Get Burrow another target to hit and make the defense even better. IMO approach the O line like the D last year. Mid tier to high mid tier FA. And maybe bring a top tier guy to the D and TE or WR.
    Wanted to bring this discussion over here. Last offseason the goal seemed to be to get to average but they fell short and ended up being bad. The better idea this offseason is to attempt to put together a good line and if you fall short and are "only" average, then you are still good to go.

    Nothing is overkill with this line it really depends on who they sign in FA.

    If you sign a Daniels or a Laken Tomlison or both it opens up the draft a bit...

    I threw this together quick before work.

    FA plan:

    Resign:
    Bates (tag)
    Uzomah
    Hill
    Reif
    Larry O
    Apple

    FA brought in:
    Daniels LG
    Laken Tomlison RG

    Draft
    Zion Johnson
    Ed Ingram

    Defense: Chandler Jones and a corner

    Mike Brown is getting old...like really old...I could see him going all in in the last few years of his life similar to what Hess did with the Jets.

    My problem with drafting any linemen is the team has proven it cannot adequately develop any of them.

    May as well sign them off FA.

    Dehner brought that up on his podcast...we suck at selecting offensive lineman...the FA market seems to have a few excellent options but many mediocre to good options...Bengals do really well at identifying FA's who have potential.

    I don't think they can afford both Hill and Larry O. I'd choose Hill.

    I suspect Apple will be cheap to re-sign. The guy is not liked around the league.

    That is the hard thing with the Bengals, is they put numbers on guys and usually won't overpay...Waynes and Hendrickson are the exceptions.

    Larry O would probably be easier just due to injury...Hill I think will be tougher as someone may overpay for his services. I could see Jax or someone wanting him and overpaying.

    Goodberry talked about 2 guys today...Daniels and Corbett...both Tier 2 and 3 guys that could come in and play right away. I think you could sign both.

    Raimann intrigues me as far as a draft prospect goes if he can keep weight...I also like Penning from Northern Iowa who is massive and very physical. Those guys could be there in 1st or 2nd rounds.

    Burrow has apparently had enough time off…

    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 agree. I see people wanting to go after extremely expensive guys like Armstead. While he’s awesome, I think the line massively improves with a guy a tick or 2 below him and the remaining money put elsewhere. I really want to see the D taken to the next level, no TE drop off, and I’d really like to see a pesky receiver added to the group of the big 3 studs

    The Cincinnati Bengals are expected to show interest in OL Orlando Brown Jr, if he does in fact hit the open market, per source.
    Per twitter

    Sign Brown...sign a guard...draft a guard or center...move Williams to RT

    WOW if it happens
