The new league year has begun and surprise the surprise the Bengals have been active in free agency.... Oh wait. To be fair, they have been. They re-signed two of their own free agents in Rey Mauluga and Clint Boling. They also signed Ohio native and lifelong Bengal fan A.J. Hawk who was recently released by the Packers. They had a meeting on Wednesday with former Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley. They're also looking into bringing Michael Johnson back to Cincy as well after his release in Tampa. So, again, they've been active in free agency. I think it was a bit unrealistic to think the Bengals would be in the running for any of the top premier talent in the free agency pool. But, they've made some moves at least.

On this week's show:

We start the program off by visiting with Cody Tewmey (@codiki), one of our great contributors here at the site. He did some film breakdown of A.J. Hawk after he signed with the Bengals this week. He didn't come away very impressed.

We discuss the possibility of the Bengals signing both Michael Johnson and Nick Fairley. If you can't have both guys, and had to pick just one, who would you prefer the Bengals sign?
