Leonard is the only free agent that they've targeted that's signed so far. Johnathan Joseph left for Houston and no updates have been provided for linebacker Brandon Johnson and defensive lineman Jonathan Fanene. The team is still reportedly interested in Cedric Benson, but the latest we've heard as the team has contacted Benson's agent.

Leonard, a special teams ace, third and fourth down back and the team's best blocking back, only rushed for 61 yards on nine carries, though he did have 20 receptions and a touchdown receiving (his first touchdown as a Bengals player since being traded before the 2009 regular season). Leonard missed five games in 2010 with an assortment of injuries, finally placed on Injured Reserve on December 28.
