2020 Offseason Roster Moves

Recommended Posts

Why would I complain about actually signing an upgrade at S and LB? It's like someone gave MB the Coronavirus and put him isolation.  It's not as if they EVER do this shit, but hell yeah I'll give 'em credit - especially a former Buckeye with remaining upside, and hopefully no more Shawn Williams (who sucks, I don't care what anyone says, he's a poor man's LB).

Aside from maybe a DE and another LB or CB, it seems the entire draft is going to be offense...

So Williams to Nickle LB maybe? Wouldn’t surprise me and might actually be a good thing. I just wonder what for defense they will be running.

If they move Williams to LB, with the intent of him being one of the nickel LBs and/or the sole dime LB, I am a LOT happier with FA

If they keep him at S, far less so

Little worried about the fact that Bynes is an ILB (in a 3-4) and Pratt played MLB - Pratt was basically the only good news at LB last year.  who moves outside?  not optimal no matter which one moves

Are the bengals going to play more 3-4 or are they staying 4-3 that’s what I’m wondering. Guess time will tell.

107. Akeem Davis-Gaither - LB,

That’s what Goodberry alluded to in a post from Mem earlier.

 

Yup. The nickel is basically their base anyhow. Big challenge has always been finding that hybrid lb/s to play the “star” role.

It’s a big reason I say they still need to take their shots with LB’s in the draft. I don’t see any additions to this point that solve that problem long term. I like what they’ve done and am not complaining at all. I still would argue that LB is a big need for building this team for more than a season.
