AFC Notes: Bengals, Ravens, Steelers


Jay Morrison of The Athletic takes a look at the Bengals’ potential free-agent market and names their “ideal fit” and “backup option.”



  • The Steelers won’t be able to afford many of their top free agents this year, but they might be able to bring back a couple of middle-tier ones. The Athletic’s Mark Kaboly writes if OL Matt Feiler is willing to take a $5 million per year deal it could be worth bringing him back to play tackle. 
  • Kaboly notes it’s about a coin flip between whether CB Mike Hilton or Cameron Sutton return. Hilton is a better slot corner but Sutton has more versatility, which Kaboly thinks gives him a slight edge. Either could find better options with other teams. 
  • Kaboly thinks the Steelers will try to keep DT Tyson Alualu and doesn’t expect him to be too pricey, perhaps just $5 million over two years. 
  • While Steelers OT Zach Banner‘s torn ACL ruined his shot at proving himself as a starter last year, Kaboly says it should allow the Steelers to bring him back for another shot at it in 2021. 
  • Kaboly expects the Steelers to move on from or not be able to bring back RB James Conner, LB Avery Williamson, S Sean Davis, DL Chris Wormley and OLB Ola Adeniyi,
