Default Bryant to Bengals

Looks like the Bengals signed the formal Buccaneer WR today.

Certainly an upgrade over Laveraneus Coles.

Yeah, but a downgrade from Whosyourmama. So still an OK receiving corps, a solid O line, questionable QB.......so pin your destiny on the defense again. Just like the Steelers.

Bryant sucks, you obviously didn't watch any Bucs games last year. That dude gives up on plays left and right. He can account for at least 3 of Freemans INT, because he simply didn't even go for the ball.

I imagine they'll still either pursue another veteran wide receiver (T.O. pipe dream?) or take one at some point in the draft. Also, they'll for sure nab a TE somewhere in the early rounds of the draft. Carson will certainly have more weapons than he did last season...but the question remains as to how effective they will be able to pass protect. Last year, the Bengals were great at run blocking but terrible at pass protection. Hopefully that will change if they can upgrade at LG and get Andre Smith in as a full-time starter.

The biggest question mark on defense is at safety...if they don't take a guy like the TE Gresham in the first round, I imagine they'll take one of the safeties available. If they can find a solid safety and they can get Antwan Odom and Maualuga back at full health, the defense should be rock solid.

The biggest problem for the Bengals next year will be the level of competition...it looks like every team in the AFC North is upgrading in some form. Should be interesting.

Do you think they would put Andre Smith inside?? Whit at LT, Collins at RT....that could solve a problem with needing a guard.

People have mentioned that before...but I don't think the team would ever actually consider it. Actually, if I were managing the team, I would put Andre Smith at LT, put Collins at RT and move Whitworth inside to LG. I'm still not completely sold on Whitworth at LT...I just don't know if he is quick enough to block some of the speed rushers he gets paired up against. He's an awesome run blocker, but his pass blocking is suspect. I think they may have been better off when they had him playing at guard as a rookie.
