29. Cincinnati Bengals

First off, it’s about time the Cincinnati Bengals decided to move on from Vontaze Burfict since this was a move that should have taken place a long time ago.

Then again, when looking at how long it took the Bengals to move on from Marvin Lewis since most head coaches in his position would have been fired a long time ago, this really shouldn’t seem all that surprising.

Does Zac Taylor have what it takes to help Cincinnati return to their winning ways from a few years ago, and put an end to their three-year drought of missing out on the playoffs? The verdict is still out there on the new Bengals coach, but at least learning from Sean McVay will help Taylor during his first season with the team.

Like most head coaches in his position, Taylor has a few questions in need of answering by the time training camp rolls around, such as whether Andy Dalton is the right answer at quarterback after given numerous opportunities to show himself worthy over the years, similar to Tannehill.

Talent wise, Cincinnati always seemed to have plenty of great players to work with on both sides of the football, and while it will be difficult to replace Burfict, the defense should be able to find a solid replacement, whether it’s from someone currently on the roster or simply the draft.
