Field Yates About FA Spending!
#1
This is an INCREDIBLE stat! It's almost UNBELIEVABLE that Zac has the biggest tight ass in the universe, Mike Brown, opening his wallet!

Quote:Over the past five offseasons, the Bengals invested a total of $49.98M on unrestricted free agents that didn't previously play for the team.

This offseason, they've spent $127M+ on such free agents already.

A new and welcomed approach in Cincinnati.

That's AMAZING! I was a Marvin defender and I always said he had more freedom than people give him credit for, which Mike Brown even said, but Taylor comes in with a plan and actual knowledge of how to build a complete team and he starts making things happen!

The future looks VERY BRIGHT!

Let's just hope that this Winecoolervirus doesn't wipe out the entire season or offseason!

It is mind blowing. To get Reader who is probably the youngest up and coming NT in the NFL, Waynes a very good boundary CB,
Bell a tackling machine, Alexander a tackling machine and from Viking's fans was their best CB, Bynes from the Ratbirds who is a 
great tackler and very smart to help our young backers, Sims and Mike Thomas to add to ST's is just a crazy amount to spend to 
improve both Defense and ST's. This isn't even talking about XSF who ***** slapped Fletcher Cox to the ground last year at LG.

Draft Offense following Burrow to help keep this Defense fresh and we are on the up and up no question. Tiger Joe

Yeah this offseason makes me wonder if it was Marvin all those years not wanting to go get after it. I could honestly see it. He's about as stuffy and boring as they come. Zac is obviously bringing change with him.

Best offseason ever imo.

I don’t know if we’re going to win in 2020, but the very fact that they’re putting forth money like this makes me hope things might finally be changing. I freely admit, I never saw this coming.
I'm just gonna go find a cash machine.

They make a big deal out of announcing they were gonna be active .  The first couple days go by and we all think damn, deja vu all over again.  And then...Boom. 

And then they go into a pause and we figure it's been great but it's over and we're still happy.

And then they launch into another round.  Staggering.

If ever there was a year where OTA's and such would really matter, this would be it.

This seems different, though, because, as I said, Taylor seems to have knowledge of how the modern NFL works and how to build a roster.

Marvin was a great defensive coordinator for a D that was stacked with talent, but he had no knowledge of how to build a roster or form a team to play with under his mindset.  Taylor has a vision and he's going out to make things happen.  That lack of vision also rings true with his lack of game-planning and in-game adjustments.  

It recently came out that Palmer left because he wanted Mike Brown to modernize things and Mike made some promises and didn't follow through, and it sounds like Taylor's taking the reigns and bringing us out of the stone ages.

Like I said, I'm excited, especially because I'm stuck in my place with nothing to do but type to myself.

Looking back in a few years, I think we will all see this as the best off-season in Bengals history. I mean, we haven't even drafted Burrow yet--let alone picks 2-7. This will be a monumental turn-around.

Sure hope so, the coaching will definitely have to be up to par over the next few years to see this come to fruition.

Couldn't make much better moves to set yourself up going into a Draft with the best QB in college history staring you in the face 
all the while dealing with a Draft with insanely deep Offensive talent.

If they were smart enough to get these player moves right, I think they will figure out the play-calling part. 

Everything is just going our way right now. Great preparation by the coaching staff. Just need to keep at it. Keep improving. Keep getting better.

Dodge this Corona Virus and get to work.

It WOULD be utterly stunning to see a team make these many great moves and not know how to use the players they have added
to go along with Joe Burrow and the first pick in every round of the Draft. Spot on, dodge that shit, be responsible and lets GO!!!

Rock On

I'm kind of wondering if the reason why Mikey is dolling out the $$$ is his age. Perhaps before he goes to his ancestral home, he wants to see a playoffs win or two or more...

Think we have been thinking the same for a few years.

The CBA change could be apart of it as could this reason.

Good to see you again Eaton BTW.

The Bengals usually sign their own. The problem the last couple of years is that they've drafted so poorly, that few of their own deserve re-signed. Thus they had a lot of money freed up and spent it on guys from outside of the organization.

Which is extremely refreshing to see...

Oh c'mon folks.. I knew they were gonna do this. I just predicted it just this afternoon in my magical hindsight prediction machine.. 
What? You don't believe me? Would I lie to my favorite bunch of Bengals fans anywhere? Nervous 


So ok..I lied, but I still wanna tell you all about my magical hindsight prediction machine. It works like this.. In hindsight I'm gonna predict I just made up a thing called my magical hindsight prediction machine.. See how that works? Magical, huh? Shocked

When i said this FA period was like an Advent calendar i had no idea it would actually last a long as advent, with a new move(s) every day for weeks. Never saw this coming from a Mike Brown led FO.
Kudos. Clearly the entire team devoted a lot of work developing a FA draft board, if you will, and executed it very well.
