The Cincinnati Bengals had quite the reunion at training camp on Sunday.

Former players Chad Johnson and Pacman Jones, along with former defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, among others, were back in Cincinnati. 

Zimmer was the Bengals' defensive coordinator from 2008-13. He left to take the Vikings head coaching job.

Zimmer was fired by the Vikings following the 2021 season.

"zim angling for that DC position if Lou gets sniped lmao," one fan tweeted.

"Zim back to Cincinnati," another fan wondered.

"Zimmer back as DC next year if Lou leaves for a bigger coaching job," one fan added.

It would be pretty cool to see Zimmer back in Cincinnati at some point.
