Bengals in talks with Warren Sapp

CINCINNATI, March 17 (UPI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals are talking to Warren Sapp and have offered the free agent defensive tackle a four-year contract, the Cincinnati Enquirer said Wednesday.

If he were to sign, Sapp would likely replace Tony Williams as the starter at right tackle and play alongside left tackle John Thornton.

The 31-year-old is a six-time Pro Bowl player who would be brought in to help bolster the Bengals overall defense. He has 77 career sacks in nine seasons but had just five in 2003, his fewest since his rookie year.

The Bengals also have re-entered the hunt to sign Eagles free agent cornerback Bobby Taylor. Taylor visited Cincinnati Sunday and Monday, but left without a deal.

Meanwhile, Bengals coaches continue to scour the country to analyze top college players. Coach Marvin Lewis and his assistants have attended pro-day workouts at Florida State and North Carolina. The Bengals were also expected to have coaches at Maryland Wednesday to watch defensive tackle Randy Starks.
