Where in the past we had to land like 50% 'good' players each year that is no longer a neccessity. To me, this provides the draft in a different context - very few, if any, immediate starters. Draft and develop and increase depth and competition. If there are large gaps (like OL was), fill in with free agency. When do have a nice run of great players who need to be re-signed, then you revert back to the depth created as you can't sign all the best ones all the time. Solid position to be in. 100% agree with this, it is awesome to see the Bengals using the same means to acquiring good players as the rest of the league. That and having Joe Burrow puts us in the conversation every year. Great feeling as a fan, one that I'm not sure I've ever had lol. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
