If that means what we think it means, we could be gracefully introduced by a new group of young rookie players by this very next post. Refresh often. Put the women and children to bed and stare at your slowly refreshing monitor that's crippling your eyeballs.

Areas that we imagine the team could address includes, but not limited to, the secondary, offensive and defensive line, general manager and running back. The Bengals have the luxury of increasing their roster to 90 players, so we imagine they'll sign guys at any position if they feel comfortable enough that that player could improve the position, or at the very least, raw enough to develop into a starter.

UPDATE: Teams can only talk. Fox Sports' Alex Marvez corrected Clayton's point that teams can only talk.
