Frostee Rucker could be a free agent the Bengals look into bringing back

After two seasons in other NFL cities, could Frostee Rucker make a return to the Bengals?

When thinking about what the Bengals could do in free agency to possibly fill talent that may leave, Frostee Rucker comes to mind. Rucker is a player that was originally drafted by the Bengals in 2006 and spent his first year on injured reserve.

During his time with the team, Frostee was a special teams contributor that rotated in at the defensive end position. He had his best season in 2011 when he had 44 tackles and 4 sacks. He spent time with the Cleveland Browns and last season with the Arizona Cardinals and recorded sacks for both teams.

In 2012, with the Browns, he had 48 tackles, four sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defensed. He finished third on the Browns in sacks and 10th in tackles.

Bringning Rucker back is a move I could see the Bengals making for a couple reasons. The first being the cost. Rucker is not the type of player that is going to demand a lot of money on the open market. The second is he is a guy that is familiar with Marvin Lewis and his system.

Would you be ok with bringing Frostee back to the Queen City?
