The Bengals lost one running back as a free agent this week, but they’re holding onto another one.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that the Bengals will re-sign Trayveon Williams. The news comes a day after Samaje Perine agreed to a deal with the Broncos.

Williams joined the Bengals as a 2019 sixth-round pick. He’s played sparingly on offense during his first three seasons — 47 carries for 238 yards — but Perine’s departure could open the door to a different role during the 2023 season.

Joe Mixon was the starter in Cincinnati ahead of Perine and Williams, but he entered the offseason with some uncertainty about his future in Cincinnati. The Bengals have not made any move involving him at this point, however.

  1. Whoever is the starting RB needs to pick up the blitz. Mixon can’t. Evans can’t. Mixon should be cut loose. Too much money for a RB who can’t get 4 yards

  2. They need to pick up a solid RB like Mattison or Sanders and draft one of the many talented backs in this years draft. Mixon is getting paid way too much for his production and now off the field issues on top of that. He used to be a top 5 back but now he has a couple solid games a year and the rest are just meh….

  3. I know it’s a small sample but he has averaged over 5 YPC so maybe he can do something
