The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off of a roller-coaster season in which they finished the season with a 10-6 record but managed to lose in the first round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year.
If the Bengals are to take the next step and corral that ever-so-elusive playoff victory, keeping the right players on the roster will be more important that ever.
After some key re-signings over the offseason and a stellar 2013 draft, the Bengals find themselves loaded with talent on this year's roster. It will be rather difficult to decide who must be cut in order for the final 53-man roster to take shape.
Training camp will certainly be filled with plenty of enticing positional battles. There are plenty of young, hungry players on this team, and it should be expected of them to leave everything out on the field.
There will be certain players who remain on the roster bubble throughout training camp and the preseason, only to have their fate decided during final cuts. Speculation of the Bengals' 2013 final 53-man roster will be rather difficult but remains a very intriguing topic.
