Predicting Bengals Starting Lineup Post Week 1 of Free Agency

After a week of free agency, it’s clear that the Bengals’ focus is to retain key players rather than fish for new ones. Headlined by defensive end Michael Johnson, who received the franchise tag, the Bengals’ 2013 free-agent class was packed with contributors.

Many positions could be filled by rookies as well. Predicting which rookies will contribute immediately is a daunting task for anyone. However, Bengals fans are all too familiar with rookie breakouts. Linebacker Vontaze Burfict fell from, at one point, being considered a top-10 pick to going undrafted. Marvin Lewis took a chance on him in rookie free agency and he went on to finish second on the team in tackles.

Here is a look at what the Bengals' starting lineup look like now, a week into free agency, and how that could change with the right additions.
