5 Free Agents the Cincinnati Bengals Should Still Sign

The Cincinnati Bengals have had a poor offseason to say the least. They already have lost DE Michael Johnson, WR Andrew Hawkins, OG Anthony Collins and LB/DE Carlos Dunlap without making accommodations to replace them. The Bengals need to bolster their roster, and the draft won't be enough. Here are five free agents the Bengals should consider signing.

It is hard to tell how much Asante Samuel has left in the tank, but the Bengals need to improve their secondary and anything can help them. It would be wise to draft a CB as well as sign a seasoned veteran like Samuel.

The Bengals have lost too many pieces in their defensive front this offseason. Last season, the defensive front did a terrific job and was able to bail out the secondary. Bengals need to accommodate for their losses in some way other than the draft. Anthony Spencer is the best DE available and would be a nice addition. Bengals should add Spencer and beef up their D-line even further in the draft.

3. Carlos Rogers

Carlos Rogers would be an intriguing option in the Bengals' secondary. The CB isn't elite by any means, but he could bring a lot to the table nonetheless. He's big, physical and would bring an NFC West style of play to the AFC. The Bengals need to consider adding as many DBs as possible.

2. Dimitri Patterson

Dimitri Patterson has shown the potential to be a shutdown corner. Unfortunately, injuries have gotten in the way the last few years. Patterson would still be a great addition to Cincinnati. He's low-risk, high-reward player who could improve the Bengals' secondary drastically if all goes right.

The Bengals need to beef up their defensive line, and Kevin Williams would be a perfect fit. He would fill in nicely while Geno Atkins recovers and would make a scary pairing with Atkins when healthy. Williams would make sure the Bengals stay playoff contenders in 2014.

Bengals' Burfict Has Experience With Illegal Plays

Everyone wants to say that Vontaze Burfict's actions were reactionary to the Steelers from earlier in the game. Take a look at this video from last week against the Ravens, and also last year against the Panthers when he wrenched Greg Olsen's ankle following a play, and you'll realize this guy's nothing but a punk.
