Possible Free Agents Bengals could look at.

Dude is a stud and smart as hell.

Could be a super bargain alternative on the O-Line.

Go for that position of immediate need and forgo accumulating picks.

Pay the money for the other positions in FA(yeah right).

LB being the one of most importance.  I agree this is probably also the most realistic.

This team doesn't need much but if quality players in other positions are available they should keep them in their sights.

What I hope doesn't happen in Free Agency:

Re-signing of
Bodine
Eifert
Winston

I'd love for us to go get Price but I just don't see it happening.  We'd likely have to give up our second and third 

I hope we go after Jensen in free agency because it opens up our draft A TON and would give us a solid anchor in the middle of the line.

I agree with this approach but would broaden to include other Centers beyond Jensen.

PFF scores for 2017:
Jensen (#9 Center) - 74.9 (average)
Sullivan (#10 Center) - 74.6 (average)
Richburg - 71.3 (average)

These guys are all set to hit FA and are right about the same scores.
Jensen and Richburg are 26 years old so they'll likely land a big, multi-year deal. But either would be big improvements over Bodine.
Sullivan was also really good but he's 32 years old, so he should come cheaper than both Jensen and Richburg.
Sullivan seems like a good target if the Bengals are going to bargain shop for a 1-2 stopgap deal. Could then still draft a replacement to groom or groom Redmond or Westerman truly at C while the other focuses solely on OG.

Personally, I consider C to be the second-most important position on the OL behind LT and we're seeing teams starting to pay centers like it, so get a mainstay at the position like Richburg or Jensen and don't look back.
I love mock drafts!

Think this guy Weston Richburg, C Could fly under the rader went to IR after 4 games this past season with a concussion but was cleared to play a few weeks before the season ended.

If they can get anything for AJ McCarron that could compensate for losing a pick to move up.

Watch this.  I think passing on Price would be a big mistake.  He might even help Dalton out once assimilated.
