While the 2020 season for the Cincinnati Bengals proved the first step to rebuilding the franchise around a new rising star quarterback in Joe Burrow, Bengals fans still have plenty to be excited about in Cincinnati.

However, a recent wave of departures from the positional and assistant coaching staff level have left quite a few availabilities open in Cincinnati for the time being.

The 2021 Bengals were already going to be without receivers coach Bob Bicknell and offensive line coach Jim Turner, but the latest two departures are defensive line coach Nick Eason and running backs coach Jemal Singleton.

As the hunt for these replacements gets into gear, the good news remains that head coach Zac Taylor, offensive coordinator Brian Callahan and defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo remain intact.

There certainly are some unknowns in Cincinnati right now, but after an encouraging end to 2020 that saw the Bengals win two of their last three, combined with the impending return of Burrow and the No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Bengals should be right back on track for their rebuild in the coming months.
