The Bengals are wrapping up OTAs this week. They have one of the best rosters in the NFL, but there are veterans that could help them in their quest to get back to the Super Bowl.
Here are three players they should consider signing in free agency:
Reiff visited the Jets last week so it sounds like he’s interested in playing this season.
The 33-year-old was a big part of the Bengals’ offense last year before suffering a season-ending injury in December. Reiff started 12 games at right tackle, but he spent most of his NFL career at left tackle.
The veteran could serve as a backup to Jonah Williams and La’el Collins. He could also give them insurance at left guard.
Reiff hasn’t won a Super Bowl in his career. Returning to Cincinnati on a team-friendly deal could make sense for him and the Bengals.
Fuller only appeared in two games last season, which is the main reason why he’s still a free agent.
The former first round pick is one of the best deep threats in the NFL when he’s healthy. He averaged 16.6 yards-per-reception in 2020, finishing with 879 yards and eight touchdowns.
The Bengals could use a proven player behind Tee Higgins, Ja’Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd.
Fuller in Cincinnati would make a lot of sense if he’s willing to sign a one-year, prove-it deal.
The Bengals could still use defensive line help.
Ogunjobi was productive for them last season, finishing with 49 tackles and seven sacks.
He agreed to a four-year deal with the Bears in March, but failed his physical after suffering a foot injury in the Bengals’ win over the Raiders in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.
Ogunjobi is good friends with DJ Reader and would fill a need on the Bengals’ defensive line. A one-year deal would make sense for both sides.
