Cincinnati Bengals Safety Would Love To Join AFC North Rival In Free Agency

The Cincinnati Bengals have been one of the best teams in the NFL since the arrival of Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase, and while the offence has been firing in recent years, the defence really took a major step forward in 2022.

One of the main reasons for that is their standout safety duo, but in recent weeks, it was officially revealed that the team have no intention of returning Jessie Bates in free agency, instead opting to stick with Dax Hill at the position.

Now, it's been revealed that Bates would 'love' to play with DeShaun Watson and the Browns in 2023, as the two share the same agent and are great friends off the field, and given their reported interest, it appears that this could be a great match for both parties.
