02:14 PM ET 04.10 | This week, the Cincinnati Bengals hosted two free agents, linebacker Karlos Dansby and safety Kerry Rhodes, according to Adam Schefter. The Bengals have approximately $27 million in cap space, the fourth most of any team in the NFL, per overthecap.com. Cincinnati can use an inside linebacker like Dansby after letting Rey Maulauga walk out the door as a free agent. Dansby has been a playmaker for years going back to his days with the Arizona Cardinals. In 2012, Dansby eclipsed 100 tackles for the second time in his career, notching a career-high 134. At 31 years old, Dansby is getting ancient by NFL standards but can clearly still play at a high level and would fit well behind the underrated defensive tackle Geno Atkins. Rhodes has been a solid safety for his entire eight-year career, amassing 23 interceptions. In his last three seasons with the Cardinals, Rhodes has come up with eight interceptions, showing off his ball-hawking prowess.

Wow, Dansby is on the market again? That seems fast - it doesn't seem that long ago that he left Arizona.

If the Bengals have $27 million in cap space, maybe they should restructure some contracts, move guaranteed money up on some guys and set themselves up to have space for years.

Adam Schefter is a dodo. The Bengals re-signed Slow Rey.

The bengals lately have been late players in free agency. When they can avoid overspending for guys that can come in and help for a year or two. Manny Lawson (parlayed his Bengals play into the bills overpayment ), Thomas Howard, green-ellis.
