This beard would be an immediate upgrade on the Bengals line. So would its owner.

    FA upgrades at guard, receiver and safety would be a big win in free agency, maybe a huge win depending on who they get. Like you said, it would give them great flexibility in the draft.

    I am not familiar with Jacob Bell, so I am curious what you like in him. ProFootballFocus doesn’t like him at all (rating of -15.8, one of only 4 guards rated worse than Livings and McGlynn). They really like Jake Scott (rating of +13.3, 3rd highest UFA guard available behind Nicks and should-be-a-Bengal Evan Mathis). I’m not saying they are right and you are wrong, just curious what you see in Bell.

    Bell was highly regarded in free agency a few years back. I know he was injured this year, so his play might have dipped somewhat, but I would imagine he’d still be an upgrade over what we have. I’d agree that Scott is clearly the best option though.
