The Bengals team is changing. More changes this year than there has been in all of Marvin's seasons. So the question is. Will the Bengals resign Marvin after this year or will he go like the others. Whitworth, Peko, Maualuga, and Zeitler.
This year Marvin is forced to go young. The oldest part of the Bengals is the defensive line. Johnson 9th year, Atkins and Dunlap in their 8th year. Most of the team has 7 years or less in the NFL. I expect Pacman to be cut soon. So lets predict the starting lineup come 1st game of season.
Defensive/ Line Dunlap, Atkins, Billings and Clarke. I don't think Johnson holds over Clarke. /Line backers, Burfict, Minter, and Vigil. /Defensive backs, Iloka, Kirkpatrick, Jackson and Smith
Offensive/ Line Ogbuehi, Boling, Bodine, Westerman and Smith. Fisher will still play backup. /RB Hill. Hill will be your running back most of the time because our OLine hasn't played together enough. So it will be power football with 2 TE sets all season. That leaves Green and Boyd. Dalton
The draft will bring offensive help. Look for two of three positions in first two round. OL, RB or TE
