With the 2014 NFL draft in the rearview mirror, the Cincinnati Bengals are going to have some extremely tough decisions to make in the coming months. You can only go into the season with a 53-man roster, and it's going to be a heck of a task trying to figure out who the best 53 are.
The secondary is loaded with younger players like Dre Kirkpatrick, Shawn Williams, and now, Darqueze Dennard. And it is stocked with veterans like Terence Newman, Leon Hall, Reggie Nelson, and Adam Jones. Then comes George Iloka and Taylor Mays—do you see where it's suddenly difficult to make cuts?
On offense, the Bengals drafted another running back this year and signed an undrafted free agent. So where will that leave BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Cedric Peerman?
These are just a few of the questions that the Cincinnati front office will will have to address as the 2014 regular season approaches, and it doesn't make it easier for the brain trust that the Bengals are coming off what could a be a very successful draft. So the expectations are going to be high once again in the Queen City.
Which 53 guys can we expect to see come early September?
