From Karlos Dansby to Brandon Spikes, this year’s FA linebacker class is stacked. Check out the list here.
These will be some of the most sought after players in free agency. So many teams in the NFL could use a quality linebacker, or two. Even if some teams have their starters set, LB rotations are interchanging and injuries happen at anytime.
For the Cincinnati Bengals, the linebacker core may be the strongest group on the entire roster. With the likes of Rey Maualuga, James Harrison, Vincent Rey, and the NFL’s leading tackler Vontaze Burfict; Realistically there isn’t very much playing time to go around.
Given the fact that we never know what the Bengals will do next, and that Marvin Lewis’ staff is very defensive minded, Cincinnati could surprise us all and snatch up one of the guys on this list. But we will stick with the script for now and assume that the Cincinnati Bengals have bigger fish to fry.
