The Cincinnati Bengals have been very active in free agency thus far, which has made it seem like Russell Bodine is set to move on.
After all, the Bengals have already spent over $20 million in acquisitions and re-signings, including the trade of Cordy Glenn, the re-signing of Tyler Eifert, and the free-agent signing of Chris Baker and Preston Brown.
And with the team looking to carryover about $10 million into next year, the Bengals don’t have any money left to spend on free agents, as the rest of it is being saved for draft picks and emergency signings.
So, what does that mean for Bodine?
It looks like the Buffalo Bills could be a possible landing spot.

You can probably guess this is good news to us:

2016- 70.5 (Average)
2017- 46.8 (Poor)
From @CincyJungle: “Bodine has simply been pushed over far too often and has brought down the entire offensive line as a result.”#Bills
The Bengals may not have a clear replacement for Bodine, but it’s time to try someone else. He’s just been too much of a hindrance to this offense for too long.
