Another position headed for an overhaul is the running backs. Only BJGE and Dan Herron are signed with them team past March 11. With the rest as free agents, now is a perfect time to reshape a position that has been a significant culprit in the under-performing offense.
We know that BJGE will be back in 2013. But the guy who was supposed to switch off with him, Bernard Scott, will probably be sent to seek his fortunes elsewhere. I was as excited as the rest about the kid for a couple of years. But that excitement has atrophied as he sat on the bench clinging to crutches. That explosive burst we saw on occasion is of little use on the sidelines.
Someone who fans are debating over is Brian Leonard. He was an effective third-down option for Carson Palmer, but he has not received the same opportunities under Jon Gruden. With his production down, some want to let him walk while others want to keep him and get him involved on third downs again.

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is expected to move inside as the team's starting middle linebacker next season.

The linebacker group is another position that could be in for a complete overhaul this offseason. All of the veteran players are currently free agents. How many are worth bringing back? Could the Bengals turn them all loose and start over?
