Talking Bengals free agency and losing Andrew Whitworth

Posted by Cincy Jungle on Thursday, March 9, 2017

With free agency here, Bengals fans have lots of questions. That’s even more true now that we know long-time Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth is moving on and joining the Los Angeles Rams for the next three seasons.

One of the best all-time Bengals players will now most likely be retiring with a different team, on the other side of the country. Whitworth is currently 35 and will be 38 by the time his contract with the Rams runs out.

Kevin Zeitler is also likely to leave Cincinnati with many teams interested in his services. The Browns and Saints are said to be the most likely destinations for Zeitler to sign.

The Bengals are putting “big money” toward Dre Kirkpatrick, in hopes of keeping one of their best three free agents in Cincinnati for the long-run.

We discussed all that and much more this morning on Facebook Live.

We’ll be doing more Facebook Live Q&As during the course of free agency and if you have any questions, be sure to leave them in the comments and we’ll get to them in a future video or article. If you’re not following us on Facebook, I recommend changing that! It’s the number one place to get live updates and continual access to our articles... other than on the CincyJungle.com homepage, of course!
