With so many signings in three days, the Bengals have reduced their money under the cap from $41 million to their current standing of $27,164,000 under the cap. Originally leading the NFL with their glorious $41 million under the cap figure with signings from guys like Manny Lawson, Cedric Benson, Max Jean-Gilles applying to the cap now that they're signed, Cincinnati's updated number puts them fifth in the NFL now behind teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($29.5 million), Kansas City Chiefs ($28.4 million), Jacksonville Jaguars ($28 million) and Cleveland Browns ($27.6 million) round out the top ten.

Once those numbers are updated, it will apply to the contracts of Brandon Johnson (which may or may not have applied) and the team's most recent signing, safety Donte Whitner.

Eventually once the free agent signings are finished, we have to believe the Bengals will look towards extensions with a number of players entering the final year under contract, including cornerback Leon Hall, offensive guard Bobbie Williams, wide receivers Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell, center Kyle Cook, tight end Chase Coffman, defensive end Frostee Rucker, defensive tackle Pat Sims and linebacker Brandon Johnson among others.
