Strategic Moves and Draft Preparations: The Bengals’ Path to Success

Perhaps the division between success and struggle is not mere coincidence; instead, it could be attributed to the pivotal decision to allow Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler to depart in 2017, significantly impacting the Cincinnati front office’s trajectory.

The combination of Health and Trey Hendrickson has become instrumental in Joseph Ossai’s pursuit of a breakout season on the Bengals’ defensive edge. Ossai commends the staff, including Joey Boese, Todd Hunt, and Garrett Swanson, for their exceptional program, emphasizing the camaraderie and the advantageous opportunity to train alongside teammates.

Reports suggest that the Cincinnati Bengals intend to part ways with Joe Mixon. Mixon, 27, is approaching the final year of a contract extension he signed in 2020, having agreed to a restructuring last July to aid the team in assembling a Super Bowl-contending roster.

In ESPN’s latest two-round mock draft, the Bengals select JC Latham and Theo Johnson. With Joe Burrow’s imminent return from injury, and the uncertainty surrounding tackle Jonah Williams’ free agency, bolstering the offensive line remains a priority for Cincinnati. Latham, known for his size and agility, aligns with the Bengals’ preference for tackles who can fortify the pocket’s depth.

The Bengals’ focus in free agency centers on key positions such as defensive tackle, safety, right tackle, and tight end, which will significantly influence their draft strategy. With an estimated $52 million in cap space, Cincinnati has room to maneuver in the free-agent market.

While Joe Burrow expresses a desire to retain Tee Higgins, the Bengals may consider trading him if an offer for a first-round pick materializes, especially as it could alleviate pressure to extend Higgins before Ja’Marr Chase.

Mock drafts following the combine suggest the Bengals aim to surround Joe Burrow with additional offensive weapons. However, retaining right tackle Jonah Williams or securing a suitable replacement in free agency remains imperative for the team’s success.
