Re-grading every NFL team's 2017 offseason

The Bengals hired former Packers QB coach Alex Van Pelt in the same position. “I have known Alex for almost 28 years,” said Bengals coach Lewis. “I am excited about the quality of teaching expertise he brings to the role and prior experiences from other teams. I look forward to him working closely with Andy Dalton to continue to raise his level of play.”

The Bengals have hired former Cowboys OL coach Frank Pollack, according to a source. Pollack did not return to the Dallas staff as part of a major shakeup with the coaching staff and the assistants after this season.

The Bengals are looking to add another secondary coach alongside Robert Livingston with Kevin Coyle not returning. The Bengals considered Livingston and Coyle more of co-coaches rather than Livingston being under Coyle. It will be a similar situation this time, although a source said Livingston will "take the lead."
