Thanks Soup For The Sig! WE GOT HIM!!!!!
I'm excited to see more changes in the secondary in the months to come. I believe we are playing the NFC North and AFC West, so we need to get better in a hurry. Rodgers, Stafford, Cutler, Manning, Rivers and possibly Alex Smith.
But yes, I completely agree with your sentiment that we play a lot of good quarterbacks this year. The secondary will need more of a boost then where it is currently at. But I think Meriweather will help out tremendously. If we can get someone in the draft in the secondary and perhaps (big IF) bring Hall back, I would be greatly encouraged. But I also think if everyone in our front 7 can come back healthy that will be a big boost in terms of how good our secondary looks as well. Finally, if Tenard Jackson has kept in shape and can come back with his head on straight, I actually think he and Meriweather could be a great combo. Again, couple of big IFs in there, but take it for what it's worth.

RT @joereedy First reported via @JennaLaineBucs and confirmed via a league source, Josh Johnson and the #bengals have agreed to terms
Johnson is an odd fit for the Bengals. Huh.

Assuming we put (significant) resources toward FS and corner (in FA or the draft), the defense should improve. Of course, they could improve to anywhere from just pretty bad, all the way to good depending on all the guys with question marks.
Last year, I felt like the secondary just needed a couple of guys to play well to improve. 2 guys out of Williams, Gomes (still learning), Bernstine, Jackson and Meriweather. And worst case, if they didn't pan out, we still had Doughty and Gomes who played pretty extensively the year before.*
This year we need 3 guys to work out (Wilson being the 4th) out of Biggers, Crawford, Minnifield, Meriweather, Jackson, Bernstine and whomever else we bring in. I am just have to believe the secondary won't be as devastated as it was last year and that we see some of these guys work out for us. I count 67.5 games missed due to injury/suspension back there... insane.
And then there's the pass rush...
* I didn't include Griffin, Crawford and Minnifield in 2012 because safety play was our biggest issue. I include them in 2013 (minus Griffin... for now) because both positions need to show improvement. I also didn't factor in nickle corner both years, although there's a strong case to do so.

So...the scuttlebutt is that we're gonna sign DHall or Winfield? I can deal with that. I still wouldn't be surprised if we picked up a vet FS on the cheap.
