ESTShareTweetShareShareTodd Grantham and Marquand Manuel among DC candidates that Bengals are looking atKim Klement-USA TODAY SportsAfter being spurned by Dom Capers, the Bengals are expanding their search for a new defensive coordinator. According to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero, Cincinnati is scanning the NFL and college football landscape:The only coach in that group with actual NFL experience is Marquand Manuel, The Bengals actually selected Manuel in the sixth round of the 2002 NFL Draft, and he played for the team for two seasons in 2002-03.After his playing career ended Womens Josh Malone Jersey , Manuel quickly rose up the coaching ranks before being named defensive coordinator of the Falcons from 2017-18, though it was a forgettable stint that saw him fired after just two seasons. Aaron Glenn helped develop what was a strong Saints secondary in 2017 that featured Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore. However, his unit took a big step back this past season, as New Orleans finished 29th in passing defense. Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mike Elko obviously has a connection to new Bengals offensive line coach Jim Turner. He’s also had coordinator stints with Notre Dame, Wake Forest Hardy Nickerson Jersey White , Bowling Green and Hofstra. Florida defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has been a good defensive play-caller in the college ranks, and it’s no secret he wants to be a coordinator in the NFL. He was actually offered a job as the Raiders’ defensive coordinator while Jack Del Rio was running the show, but Grantham declined since Del Rio has a big say in the defense. Grantham wants full control if he’s coming to an NFL team. He’d obviously get that in Cincinnati. And of course, Aubrey Pleasant is someone the Bengals want to interview, though it’s unclear if the Rams will give them permission. The Steelers came out of Cincinnati with a 28-21 win on Sunday afternoon Vontaze Burfict Jersey White , but they didn’t convince one member of the Bengals defense that they are the better team.Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick insisted the Bengals are on top despite the result of Sunday’s game.“We’re better than them,” Kirkpatrick said, via Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com. “They ain’t better than us. Period. They ain’t better than us; we’re better than them. But they won, so my hat’s off to them. I’m gonna be a team player … they went out there and they fought. They got the win; we got the loss.”The Bengals led 21-20 after a Joe Mixon touchdown with 1:18 left to play, but the Steelers drove for an Antonio Brown touchdown that won the game. They got a first down on the way there thanks to a holding penalty on Kirkpatrick Womens Clark Harris Jersey , who said the call was “trash” after the game.
