Per a league source, defensive end Frostee Rucker will be going to visit other teams. He will not be just speaking with them, but visiting with them as well. While Rucker is visiting other teams, his agent Jimmy Gould has said that talks between Rucker and the Bengals are "ongoing". One productive visit between Rucker and another team could result in the Bengals losing one of their most productive defensive linemen from last season.

The Bengals could also lose two other productive linemen. Jonathan Fanene and Pat Sims are also unrestricted free agents. Sims may look for a starting job, but he would be nice to bring back to help the pass rush. In a perfect world, the Bengals would bring in Mario Williams. As we all know, this is not a perfect world. The best thing that the Bengals can do here is bring back what works, and Rucker, Sims,and Fanene have all had productive seasons.
