The Bengals' potential targets in NFL free agency are going off the board fast.

Right after the Rams signed Nick Fairley after he visited Cincinnati, the Titans reached an agreement with Anthony Fasano just days after his visited with the Bengals. The free-agent tight end spent Monday in Cincinnati, but no contract was offered, and now he's joining Tennessee as the first week of free agency wraps up.

The nine-year veteran was cut by the Chiefs after he was set to make $2.8 million next season. He finished his two-year run in Kansas City with 48 catches for 426 yards and seven touchdowns over 26 games.

The 30-year-old Fasano has logged 109 starts during nine seasons with the Cowboys, Dolphins and Chiefs while cracking 400 yards in just three seasons and never topping 528 yards. He wasn't going to be a No. 1 tight end in Cincinnati with Tyler Eifert here, but he'd more than be suitable in a No. 2 role.

That may be a position the Bengals choose to address in the late rounds of the draft or through undrafted free agency. We've mentioned guys like Alabama's Brian Vogler as someone who could be taken in the late rounds or as undrafted free agents.

In other words, don't fret on missing out on Fasano.
