    If you use the Bates model, the Bengals would tag Tee this year and then also draft his replacement (Bryan Thomas Jr?) in Rd 1 ... The same as they did by taking Bates and then drafting Dax for his eventual replacement to learn under him for a year. 


    If they draft a WR in the first round I will shoot somebody (probably myself). If they tag and trade Tee I'd do my best to resign Boyd and maybe go WR in the 5th or later. We df=rafted Jones and Yoshi for a reason, lets see what they have first before replacing them.

    Never mind depth, they don't even have 5 quality starters. It's been like that for years and their attempts to fix it have been either half-assed or complete failures. Not drafting anyone last year despite all this and knowing the RT was on the way out as well defies explanation. Its like they've thrown up their hands in resignation but somehow ownership is ok with it.



    List of o-linemen drafted by the Bengals in the "premium" rounds since Zac took over:


    Jonah Williams


    Jackson Carman

    Cheap as in 5 mil or less. Not a guy on a minimum benefit veteran contract like Ford. Jermaine Eluemonor will be a free agent and was paid 3 mil last year. PFF ranks him as the 35th best tackle in the NFL, ahead of Brown or Williams.


    Also rated better than both of them would be Morgan Moses who makes 5 mil per year but has another year on his contract. 


    George Fant ranked higher than Williams and will be a free agent. He made 3 mil on his last free agent deal. 


    Cam Fleming graded about the same as Jonah but only cost 2.5 mil. Yosh Nijman or Dan Skipper might also be options. 


    There are plenty of experienced, solid 28+ yr old tackles available who don't offer upside but do have floors higher than a rookie will offer the first half of the season.


    Not saying you are wrong, but eventually they are going to have to start hitting on oline draft picks. Can't keep signing adequate to good linemen and expect to have enough money left to improve other areas. I want our first 4 pick to be split between olinemen and dtackles (of course i fully expect to be very disappointed come April).

    Does the defense have anyone other than Reader that's played the run well this year?


    I've always thought Wilson was better in coverage than against the run, but I don't either LB as played as well as they did last year. The run defense is on pace to allow more division rushing yards than any team in AFC North history. 


    The only returning defensive starters that have played as well or better than last year are Reader, Hendrickson, BJ Hill and Taylor Britt (before going on IRR). The others have taken a step back.


    Big flashing "Personal Opinion" here. I think the D is built to stop the pass as it is assumed that most opponents will be playing from behind. But Joes injury and Zac's weird decision to completely abandon the run allowed teams to stay in the game/or take the lead and expose the D's weaknesses. Doubt there is a fix this year and will probably have to wait for the draft to do anything about it.


    Feel free to flame.  🙂

    I doubt another team gives us much for him. There are lots of backup QBs doing well this year. My guess is: we've found that backup QB we've been looking for since Burrow came here. Be satisfied with that. It does fill a hole we needed to fill


    This unless he leads us deep in the playoffs (not with our d ). Getting to the AFC championship game would garner a lot of interest i bet.
