Breer previously reported that the Bengals would like to re-sign Iloka, but it appears as though the market is deep enough that it could be difficult for them to retain him and address other free agents and roster needs.
Yesterday, Jim Owczarski of the Enquirer reported that Iloka had received “serious interest” from the Falcons, Giants, Lions, Vikings, and Bengals.
Iloka, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract and is now in line to cash in as one of the best safeties in this year’s free agent market.
In 2015, Iloka appeared in 12 games and recorded 47 tackles, one interception, and four pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 15 safety out of 88 qualifying players.
We have him featured in our Top 100 – 2016 Free Agents list.
