Tracking Cincinnati Bengals free agency rumors

Charting the rumors and reports concerning Bengals free agents and new players that Cincinnati plans to sign in 2015. If you see anything that we're missed, let us know (via email if possible).

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

Since we're still in the infancy stages of free agency -- dubbed legal tampering (an oxymoron probably created by a moron), information, news and reports concerning the Cincinnati Bengals is a bit quiet. We're not surprised -- the Bengals hate publicity and rarely choreograph their moves until they're nearing completion. How many times were you just enjoying the day when BOOM, an extension is signed? They're quiet, quick and relentless with free agent signings. You're being dramatic. Moving on...

There are rumors and reports concerning pending free agents in Cincinnati, players that the Bengals are attempting to re-sign and new players that the Bengals might bring to Cincinnati. There are a limited number of current free agents that can sign deals. However, deals are reaching agreement, despite rules that say negotiations aren't allowed (or so that was the case).
