CINCINNATI — Bengals media voices Joe Goodberry and Jake Liscow discussed Germaine Pratt’s stellar 2022 season on Twitter Monday afternoon, when the linebacker chimed in with a statement about his third game.
Pratt possesses the highest PFF pass coverage score among linebackers (90.1 grade, 1/60) and made it clear he will be a more regular third-down linebacker next season.
“Of course you know that” said Liscow to Goodberry. “They use it selectively in reporting and use it in certain ways most of the time. Despite this, he has made great strides in almost every way this year.”
“Yes, I’ve been thinking about how to phrase it.” replied Goodberry. “Nevertheless, you have to cover yourself in basic defence. And he does it well.
“Trust me, I’ll be third next year” said Pratt to both in a reply out of nowhere
The linebacker expressed his frustration with the third season a few weeks ago and will enter the 2023 offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
Pratt, Vonn Bell and Hayden Hurst should be the primary internal targets for Cincinnati. Jessie Bates has played well enough to be at the top of this list but it would be a surprise if the Bengals meet his contract demands after years of haggling.
Cincinnati and Baltimore lead it back Sunday at 8:15 p.m. ET in the wild card round. The game is available on NBC via fuboTV – start your free trial here.
