If I'm betting, here are 2 FA I can actually see us going after this offseason

Obviously, there are several other free agent's I would prefer us to target this offseason (i.e. Carl Nicks, Brandon Carr, etc.). However, based on our recent track record, I've listed two FA I think you may actually see us go after, regardless of if we persue any of the other big named players or not.


1. Jason Allen CB/S (Houston) - He was a top 20 pick, released by the Dolphins and picked up by the Texans. He has played pretty well for the Texans but is still inconsistent. Obviously, we know the Texans acquired JJOE last year and then they drafted Kareem Jackson who is starting as the other CB ahead of him (was a first round as well), therefore the Texans will likely let him walk. The Bengals love to go after free agents who were high draft picks (with tons of talent) but have been considered disappointments (Reggie Nelson, Manny Lawson, Cedric Benson etc) and get them at bargain prices. CB and safety are both areas of need this off season, so I would not be at all surprised to see the Bengals go after Jason Allen. It will be interesting to see what Zimmer could do with him and his talent in our system, alah Reggie Nelson.

2. Chilo Rachal Guard (49ers) - He was a top 40 pick, which is extremely high for a guard. Ironically, he was benched after giving up 2 sacks and several penalties to the Bengals this year (to be fair, at this point in the season most teams did not realize how good our d-line was actually going to be ). He is big and strong 6'5 325, and can be a dominant run blocker (exactly the type of lineman the Bengals seem to covet). Although, he did play well in 2010, he struggled in pass protection in 2011 and with a new coach (Jim Harbaugh), it's doubtful the 49ers will resign him. Guard is also a postion of need, therefore this is another reletively high draft pick (especially for the position) that I could see the Bengals making a run at this off season, assuming the price right.

Again, I could be wrong but based on our track record, I think these are two free agents who could be on the Bengals radar.
