Bengals to start negotiations with Mike Zimmer this week

Now that the players have gone home and we're officially in the offseason, we wanted to point out that the biggest offseason story, at least at this point, is whether or not the Bengals will be able to sign Mike Zimmer. Zimmer played his final game under contract during the team's 24-14 loss.

The Bengals had attempted to talk to Zimmer, but the defensive coordinator said nothing came to fruition. Then a report from NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora wrote that the Redskins were prepared to meet with Mike this weekend if the Bengals lost. No word on that yet.

Joe Reedy wrote on Monday that the "Bengals are expected to begin negotiations on an extension with Zimmer this week." Think we'll sign him?
