We should ABSOLUTELY be bringing Richardson in for a looksee

https://www.si.com/nfl/bengals/gm-report/bengals-should-target-sheldon-richardson-ahead-of-2021-nfl-draft

Looks to be a good rotational player with Ogunjobi and Daniels at the 3TDT spot

as the article says, signing would not affect the 3rd or 4th round 2022 comp pick we're currently expected to get, and this years draft class is VERY weak at DT

Alex Smith calls it a career.

He finishes his career with a 99-67-1 record as an NFL starter, having played for the San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs and Washington. Over the course of his 16-year career, which included 14 seasons, he completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 34,922 yards, 195 touchdowns and 105 interceptions, for a passer rating of 86.9

So...prior to this I was figuring/worried that o-line would off the board at both 27 and 31 to the ravens and chiefs - now that is off the table and ravens will take one of those slots for WR most assuredly. RIP to Bateman sliding to 38 I think.

They’re just replacing Fisher, who got released last month.

Ultimately 1 RT draft prospect will go to the Ravens.   Staley returns to their Left side. 
 

At least 1 won’t go to the Chiefs and Ravens. 
 

Ravens can kill the draft with Marshall and Leatherwood.

Rumor has it they already have 80 weapons.

Yeah it's a good point, and more evidence that they can likely find very good value with the 2nd pick on the OL.

Just like everyone else that has signed him, they're really signing his wife.

Not saying the should go after him, don’t know anything about him, but just a reminder for those not happy with the OL after the draft there will be more options.

I dont know where we'd put this guy, exactly, but he was a pro bowl alternate in 2019 and a probowler in 2020

age 29, OLT, very durable

https://www.si.com/nfl/bengals/news/should-bengals-make-a-run-former-chicago-bears-left-tackle-charles-leno

but a durable pro bowl lineman under 30? 

I think we have to at least put the topic on the table, call him, see if we can get him in for a full medical plus Pollack looksee, etc, like right away
