The Cincinnati Bengals are known for being quiet in free agency despite typically entering the market with a wealth of cap space.
This approach has led to accusations of alligator arms from owner Mike Brown but fans will come to appreciate how the front office does business this offseason if the team can use the wealth of extra cap space to bring back key players and extend others.
As it stands now, the Bengals rank ninth in the league with $27,554,960 million in free space, according to Spotrac.
While big at first glance, that number will evaporate quickly as the Bengals re-sign, extend and potentially add players off the market—not to mention setting aside some cash for injury purposes and a new rookie class.
To win free agency the Bengals simply have keep doing what they do best. The following slideshow will detail how the Bengals can use the same formula this offseason and emerge from the offseason a better team.
