Bengals Formally Interviewed And Met South Carolina Safety D.J. Swearinger

USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals are clearly in the market for a new safety and what better time to find the best fit than the NFL draft?

With the Cincinnati Bengals facing a significant shortage of reliable and productive safeties in the defensive backfield, it only forces one to strongly conclude that safety will be one of, if not the top, need this offseason. Whether it's free agency or the NFL draft, figure that new faces will mix with old to develop rebuild personnel in the secondary.

According to our man on the scene Jason Garrison, the Cincinnati Bengals formally interviewed South Carolina safety D.J. Swearinger this weekend.

As we've pointed out several times this weekend, don't get too caught up in whom talks to whom. Along with the fact that most teams speak with most prospects anyway, it's hardly an indication that the team is going in one direction or the other. For example, do you know how many times the Bengals spoke with defensive tackle Geno Atkins during the predraft process in 2010? None.
