Cincinnati Bengals free brokers 2021: Full listing of Bengals free brokers, signings, cuts, cap house, franchise tag, extra


The Cincinnati Bengals will have to make some important decisions for some well-known freelance agents relatively soon. There were 29 players on the 2020 Cincinnati roster who are free agents going into the off-season. Longtime Bengali recipient AJ Green is a free agent and we’ll see how the front office values ​​him. On the defensive, the Bengals have many decisions to make, including what to do with cornerbacks William Jackson III and Mackensie Alexander and edge rusher Carl Lawson.

Loss of revenue due to COVID-19 will affect any team, but with so many free agents, the likely drop in the league-wide salary cap could make things difficult. The 2020 number was around $ 198 million, while the 2021 number could drop to $ 180.5 million, according to data Over the cap.

Franchise / transition day opportunities

It will be interesting to see if the Bengals choose to put one of their free agents on a franchise day this off-season. The two possible options for this designation would be Jackson and Lawson as the two most talented freelance agents on the list, although both could seek long-term deals.

Green played on Franchise Day last season and saw production decline. He played in all 16 games but caught only 47 passes to 104 targets for 523 yards and two touchdowns. In addition, the recipients John Ross and Alex Erickson are freelance agents.
