Summary

The Bengals added Kevin Minter to fill a two down role in their base packages. He is a stout run defender with plenty of starting experience from his time with the Cardinals, but is considered somewhat of a liability in coverage. Minter was able to earn sub package snaps in Arizona last year but that may have been more out of desperation than by design. In an effort to mask his shortcoming the Cardinals had him blitz fairly often, resulting in 3.5 sacks while his two years as a starter produced all of 4 passes defended and no takeaways. The Bengals have a couple of good coverage linebackers so Minter is all but certain to take a seat in sub package situations. The only other question is if he will work at middle backer or on the strong side. Either way his fantasy value projects to be minimal at best. (May 24)
