PFF proposes a trade for Bengals to land Colts’ incredible tight end

PFF proposes trade for Bengals to land Mo Alie-Cox from Colts
Room needs help.
Among the Cincinnati Bengals’ offensive struggles through the first six games of the season is a position group that has been a clear weakness: tight end.
Irv Smith Jr., Drew Sample and the rest of the tight end have been almost non-factors this season, leading some to believe that outside help in the building could be the answer . The Bengals have not historically been an offseason team, but they have changed their ways in recent years.
PFF’s Brad Spielberger believes a tight end can be found who will be a good fit for the Bengals. Spielberger sees Mo Alie-Cox of the Indianapolis Colts as Cincinnati’s top trade target.
Cox has two years and a reasonable $8,886,666 remaining on his current contract and has graded 66.8 on PFF this season.
“Alie-Cox is now third on the Colts depth chart in terms of snap share going into 2023, with 2021 third baseman Kylen Granson leading the way and 2022 sixth baseman Andrew Ogletree showing Serious blocking ability with some pretty decorations sprinkled on top. Indianapolis also used a fifth-round pick in last year’s draft on Will Mallory out of Miami (OH) and 2022 third-rounder Jelani Woods continues to recover from a hamstring injury » , Spielberger said.
Spielberger has the Bengals send a fourth-round pick to Indianapolis in a deal that would get them Alie-Cox and a seventh-round pick.
“The Bengals have the lowest-rated tight end room in the league (45.1 overall) and could use another dimension in their offense, with Alie-Cox providing a blocking Solid breaking and a solid third-level option in the red zone with his immense strength frame. ” said Spielberger.
