That is largely partly due to Jessie Bates and the star he’s become throughout his three seasons with the Bengals however he can’t do it on his personal. Vonn Bell has confirmed to be definitely worth the cash and is a pleasant associate for Bates within the secondary on the security place.
Right here’s what the Cincinnati Bengals’ security depth chart seems to be like coming into coaching camp.
Security doesn’t have a number of depth to it and that’s as a result of it’s not precisely probably the most riveting place on the sector. Bates and Bell give the Bengals a number of insurance coverage right here with each guys beginning all 16 video games a season in the past. Bates has but to overlook a begin in his profession whereas Bell missed three video games in 2019 with the Saints.
As for the backups, Wilson has principally made his identify as a return specialist, returning one kickoff for a landing in every of the final two seasons. That’s the place he’s shined the brightest however that isn’t the one space the Bengals use him in, as he appeared in 15 video games final 12 months on protection as nicely.
Henderson, a former UDFA out of Hawaii, has spent the previous two seasons with the Bengals and has appeared in eight video games. He hasn’t executed a lot on the defensive aspect of the ball however that’s as a result of he actually hasn’t been known as upon a lot.
Frazier signed with the Bengals in free company after taking part in for the Cowboys for 4 years and the Dolphins for one 12 months. The Bengals shouldn’t anticipate a lot out of Frazier this 12 months, if something, and truthfully, that’s a superb factor as a result of it signifies that each Bates and Bell are wholesome.
As I discussed beforehand, the Bengals have a superb factor going on the security spot, as Bates is likely one of the greatest safeties within the recreation and Bell is the right complement to him. These two, together with the new faces at the cornerback position, ought to assist the Bengals’ secondary enhance within the 2021 season.
