Quite a day for the Bengals defense. They lose Madieu Williams to the Vikings, but A) They were 31st in pass defense DVOA last year, and B) They're probably better off losing him then guaranteeing him $13 million, like Minnesota did. They then traded third- and fifth-round picks to the Lions for defensive tackle Shaun Rogers. At this point I must point out that the Lions finished dead last in defending runs up the middle in 2007. Finally, the Bengals announced they had reached an agreement to re-sign linebacker Dhani Jones. The article on the Bengal's Web site suggests the team could go with a 4-3 or 3-4 defense in 2008.

The 2015 Saints were the worst defense we have ever measured, and Brandon Browner set a single-season record for penalties, so it's no surprise to see him at the bottom of the coverage tables.
