BB: The Cincinnati Bengals Free Agency Contract Chart

New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals have signed many players this year, but mostly their own? How much has it cost them so far?

You might not count it similarly, or constitute the perspective as your point of view. Yet it's the bottom line of bottom lines. The Cincinnati Bengals have signed 14 free agents by our count (13 were re-signed from last year's squad). If we count the salaries on those 14 players, the Cincinnati Bengals have scheduled $65.83 million to those players throughout the life of those respective contracts. However 53.7 percent of that total money is earmarked for the first year in 2013.

A listing of the free agents that Cincinnati signed so far this year.
