The Bengals may be just about desperate to get back some of the depth on the defensive line that they lost yesterday. If they are not yet desperate, they probably should be. After losing Frostee Rucker and Jonathan Fanene to Cleveland and New England respectively, signing former Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Kendall Langford should be of the utmost importance to the Bengals. According to Langford's agent, the Green Bay Packers have also inquired on Langford. A visit has not yet been set up, but Green Bay is interested.

Langford's main strength is playing the run. He failed to register a sack last season and only had one quarterback hit. Langford had 25 tackles last season while playing in a 3-4 defense and said that his numbers were low because teams ran away from him. Langford is six foot five and weighs 295 pounds. He was a third round pick out of Hampton in 2008 and has seven and a half career sacks to his name. If the Bengals lose free agent Pat Sims, drafting a defensive tackle early on in the draft would be a strong possibility.
