How the 3 new linebackers fit in the Bengals defense

The Cincinnati Bengals drafted a linebacker in 2020, not once, not twice, but thrice!

What position a player plays is not as important as what they are asked to do. The Bengals are very multiple on defense and ask their linebackers to do a lot of different things.

All of the film review content will be on SB Nation’s Cincy Jungle podcast channel, along with the other episodes of The Orange and Black Insider. New shows like the “Orange is the New Black” podcast from Ace Boogie and Zim WhoDey and “Sorry If I Spit When I Speak” from Dadio Makdook and Dr. Hodgie Smodgie have also been added to the channel’s audio slate.
