Linebacker Josh Bynes, one of the biggest surprises on defense for the Ravens last season, has signed a one-year deal with the Bengals, a league source told ESPN's Jamison Hensley, confirming multiple reports.

With Nick Vigil signing a one-year deal with the Chargers, the Bengals' need for linebackers becomes more imperative. Vigil, Cincinnati's third-round draft pick in 2016, was the team's most experienced player at that position. Germaine Pratt, who was a rookie in 2019, is the lone linebacker on the roster who played more than eight percent of the team's defensive snaps last season.

The Bengals have agreed to terms with ex-Vikings cornerback Mackensie Alexander, a source confirmed on Thursday morning. The former second-round pick will receive a one-year deal worth $4 million. Alexander made 10 starts in four years in Minnesota. Alexander could help fill a void left by Darqueze Dennard, who signed with the Jaguars after six seasons in Cincinnati.

The Bengals agreed to terms with offensive lineman Xavier Su'a-Filo for a three-year deal worth $10 million, a source confirmed on Wednesday. The six-year veteran has made 53 starts in his career. He spent the last two years with the Dallas Cowboys and started 12 of his 19 appearances. Su'a-Filo's addition comes hours after the Bengals released John Miller. Miller was the team's primary starting right guard in 2019 and still had two years remaining on his contract.

Source: CB Dennard, Jags reach 3-year deal

Darqueze Dennard, who was one of the most effective defensive backs for the Bengals last season, has reached a three-year, $13.5 million deal with the Jaguars, a source told ESPN.

Anything the Bengals want to do in free agency should include shedding QB Andy Dalton's contract. After they tagged WR A.J. Green and tendered four restricted free agents, Cincinnati has around $3.8 million in salary cap wiggle room as the negotiating period opens. It is still holding space for draft salaries, future injury costs, dead money, etc. For the team to get up to $20 million as it anticipates, it would likely need to shed Dalton's expiring contract worth $17.7 million in cap space.

The Bengals have tendered four restricted free agents, the team announced Monday: TE Cethan Carter, G Alex Redmond, DT Josh Tupou and S Brandon Wilson.
