We've reached Day 4 of free agency and the Cincinnati Bengals have remained comparatively quiet while also losing several of their own players in order to free up additional cap space, presumably for future signings.

This is normal for this organization. You won't hear many stories about the team going out and landing major, big-splash free agents during the first week of the signing period. It's in the draft where the Bengals like to make their personnel noise, and anticipate doing so again this May.

The players who will be signed by the Bengals between now and the beginning of May will primarily be those who already had contracts with the team.

To help you get caught up on where things stand with the Bengals at the start of Day 4, here's a scorecard:

Signed
OG/C Mike Pollak (re-signed Saturday)
WR/PR/KR Brandon Tate (re-signed Tuesday)

Gone
DE Michael Johnson (signed with Tampa Bay on Tuesday)
C Kyle Cook (cut Tuesday)
OT Anthony Collins (signed with Tampa Bay on Thursday after mulling offer from Cincinnati)
LB James Harrison (cut Thursday)
CB Brandon Ghee (signed with San Diego on Thursday)

Up in the air
S Taylor Mays (reportedly re-signed Tuesday, but Bengals still haven't announced)
WR Andrew Hawkins (signed Browns offer sheet of four years, $13.6 million; Bengals not expected to match)

Other remaining 2014 free agents
OT Dennis Roland (UFA)
LB Mike Boley (UFA)
S Chris Crocker (UFA)
P Zoltan Mesko (UFA)
TE Alex Smith (UFA)
LB Vincent Rey (RFA)
WR Dane Sanzenbacher (RFA)
