The draft still lays ahead and the second wave of free agency may present a chance to add a player or two. However, we know that the 2019 Bengals will look a lot like last year’s team, at least on paper.
Last year’s squad only posted six wins. Still, with a brand new coaching staff in place for the first time in nearly 20 years and the organization preaching a “New Dey” on social media, there was reason for optimism heading in to free agency. It was all talk. So far, the organization has done what it always has, bring back players who contributed to last year’s disappointment while bringing in very few or no fresh faces from the outside.
