This is the first in a series of articles looking through each of the position groups with an eye toward free agency. And why not begin with one of the lightning rods for this team?
Rey Maualuga: unrestricted free agent
Often a liability, he should not be the middle backer next year. But I say he will be a Bengal in 2013. [Collective groan.] Face it. Rey will draw zero interest, making him cheap to re-sign. And he has experience in Zimmer’s system. He is a reclamation project at this point. If Zim can tear him down and rebuild him again (by benching him and making him earn his way onto the field again), he just might find a serviceable player hiding in there somewhere once Rey stops trying to not lose his job.
Vontaze Burfict: signed through 2014
The kid was simply brilliant. Moving him to the middle of the defense is inevitable. Marvin showed his GM skills by reaching out to a kid that everyone else had given up on and finding a real gem in the process.

Michael Johnson should be Cincinnati’s number 1 free agent target
Well, we all would have liked the season to have extended a bit further than it did, but the positives to take away from the 2012 campaign are many. First, the team broke down several long-standing barriers on the way to back-to-back playoff appearances. Secondly, the young up-and-coming stars got another season...

2012 was a great year to be a Bengals fan! They made the playoffs in back to back years for the first time in 30 years. That’s amazing. The Bengals are an up and coming team STILL and they play in a division where the rest of the players are turning into grumpy old men. Ed Reed, Troy Palamalu can’t play forver. Its guys like Ray Rice, Antonio Brown, Mike Wallace that scare me...
It’s a tradition that’s been going on for years: tailgating. And now that’s playoff time in the NFL, tailgates are at an all time high. Sometimes the party begins up to 10 hours before kickoff so you’d better be prepared.
Dhani shows us that not everyone can always be the most prepared. In fact there’s gonna be some fumbles along the way. Enjoy this humorous look at...
