#bengals roster is officially at 90 again -- 80 signed players plus the 10 draft picks— Joe Reedy (@joereedy) May 2, 2013
The Bengals have Chris Pressley at fullback and they have John Conner to back him up. At tackle, the Bengals have Andre Smith back in the fold and with Andrew Whitworth on the other side of the line, the team doesn't need anyone outside of Anthony Collins, Dennis Roland and rookie Reid Fragel. At wide receiver, the Bengals have several talented players and won't likely miss Hilton.
The Bengals will have to shave that 90 players down to 53 (only 46 dress) when the season starts for the active roster. With the amount of talent already on the team and the amount brought in by the draft and in college free agents, the Bengals are likely to have to let some very talented players go by the time the regular season starts.
