Alex Marvez reports that former Packers DC Dom Capers could become a “strong option” for the Bengals’ defensive coordinator job if the team doesn’t hire Dennis Allen.
Jack Del Rio has also been linked to the Bengals’ defensive coordinator job under Zac Taylor.
Capers interviewed for the Cardinals’ coordinator job before they settled on Vance Joseph.
Capers, 68, has worked for a number of teams of his NFL career including two head coaching stints with the Panthers and Texans. The Packers hired him as their defensive coordinator in 2009 and he spent the nine seasons in Green Bay in charge of their defense before being fired after the 2017 season.
Capers produced just one top-10 defense and that happened to be the year they won the Super Bowl.
We’ll have more regarding the Bengals as the news is available.
