The Cincinnati Bengals had another solid regular season in 2013, which culminated in a trip to the AFC playoffs. Unfortunately, once again, their playoff stay was short-lived as they were bounced in the first round by the San Diego Chargers. In 2014, there should be no reason that this team can’t have another crack at a Super Bowl run, and that starts with the work in the upcoming offseason training programs.
Here’s a look at the upcoming spring and summer schedule for the Bengals as they get set to hopefully take the next step in 2014.
OTA offseason workouts: May 27-29, June 3-5, June 16-18
Mandatory minicamp: June 10-12
In anticipation of these, here’s a reminder of the key free agency acquisitions the Bengals have made as well as their most recent draft picks.
