The Cincinnati Bengals and Zac Taylor proved they were ready to do whatever necessary to get back in the fight for the AFC North with their free-agent signings of D.J. Reader and Trae Waynes. Both players will help them combat their divisional rivals who have taken steps to improve this off-season.
Starting with Reader, his primary focus will be to stop the rushing attacks, especially those of the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns. This is especially key in matchups against the Ravens, as they’ve lost all-pro guard Marshall Yanda to retirement.
