Bengals work out veteran pass rusher

The Cincinnati Bengals are going to give Dwight Freeney a workout this week, with an aim to signing the veteran defensive end as a situation


The Cincinnati Bengals are going to give Dwight Freeney a workout this week, with an aim to signing the veteran defensive end as a situational pass rusher this year. The Bengals lost Wallace Gilberry in free agency so have room for a seasoned pass rusher to come in, and Freeney has shown he can be deadly in that role. Last season with Arizona he only played 24.4% of the defensive snaps and yet he provided a vital 9 QB hits, 3 forced fumbles and a team-leading 8 sacks. If he can do the same for the Bengals this season, in addition to the likes of Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap that defensive line becomes a deadly prospect for any opposing quarterback. While the veteran Freeney is not the same speed demon he was during his years in Indianapolis he still possesses an unbelievably good spin move that gives offensive tackles fits every time.
