Cincinnati Bengals Rumors: 3 Offseason Trade Candidates

Welcome to Football Rumors' Offseason Trade Candidates series. During it, we will be discussing three players from each team who could be moved during the offseason.

In this latest piece, we will be focusing on the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Jonah Williams: Jonah Williams is currently being shopped by the Bengals, as he has requested a trade and they added Orlando Brown this offseason. He certainly should get plenty of interest in the trade market, as he is still only 25 years old and teams around the league are always looking to improve at the tackle position. Therefore, he is a player to pay close attention to in the rumor mill from here.

Joe Mixon: Joe Mixon's name has come up in the rumor mill. In fact, Bengals executive Katie Blackburn even noted that Nixon may not remain with the team for this upcoming season. A release is certainly possible, but there could still be some teams also willing to bring him and his expensive cap hit in. In 14 games this past season, he had seven touchdowns, 210 rushes, and 814 rushing yards. 

2023 First-Round Pick: If the Bengals want to make a big trade before the draft, they could move their 2023 first-round pick. This is entirely possible when noting that they are in win-now mode, so this is something to keep an eye on later this month.
