    Is that really a win? It's a win for a cheap organization.

    hopefully Adrian Ealy is still available for us to sign in free agency.

    he might be out of our price range though since he's so coveted by so many other teams.

    What if the team DOES take O'Cyrus Torrence and this guy is just filling K.Green's roster spot?

    I would actually be excited to have the likes of Dotson and Herbig as a backup tandem... just sayin'

    Bengals signed LT Orlando Brown, formerly of the Chiefs, to a four-year, $64.092 million contract.


    The Bengals continue to revamp their offensive line for star quarterback Joe Burrow. In his brief five-year career, Brown has blocked for the likes of Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes, and will now anchor the left side of the Bengals' offensive line for the foreseeable future. After starting every game of his career at left tackle, fifth-year vet Jonah Williams will likely slide over to right tackle in the final year of his deal, while La'el Collins likely turns into a trade candidate or cap casualty. The Bengals can release Collins pre-June 1 and save $6.05 million in cap. Brown's $31 million signing bonus makes for a rather front-loaded contract, as he'll earn roughly $16 million in annual base salary.

    Look what the Bengals are doing to protect their young QB. Their signing super bowl winning linemen. Their trying to neutralize our pass rush.

    Is Dotson tradeable? get a 5th or a 6th?

    That is when we draft a C early rounds... Schmitz or Tippman.

    Winners and Losers of NFL's 2023 Early Tampering Period

    Winner: Middling Offensive Linemen
    7 OF 8

    The lack of quality offensive linemen in the NFL becomes more apparent each year, as teams pay premiums for average blockers.

    The league and NFLPA created quite the conundrum in the name of player safety.

    Because the sides scaled back the number of padded practices and physicality involved, offensive linemen tend to be less prepared for the game's rigors. The simplicity of some collegiate offenses and lack of quality coaching at lower levels have exacerbated the issue.

    As a result, teams tend to spend a lot on competent options.

    Everyone saw this when average free agents agreed to massive deals.

    A couple signees happened to be well worth their new contracts, though.

    The Atlanta Falcons provided Chris Lindstrom with the largest deal for a guard in NFL history, and right tackle Kaleb McGary agreed to a three-year, $34.5 million contract. But they're two of the league's best run blockers at their positions.

    Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs plopped down a four-year, $80 million contract for Jawaan Taylor. The expectation is for Taylor to replace Orlando Brown at left tackle, though Taylor has been a right tackle since his days with the Florida Gators.

    Mike McGlinchey received an even bigger deal to leave the San Francisco 49ers and join the Denver Broncos: five years and $87.5 million. McGlinchey does excel as a run blocker, but he's inconsistent as a pass protector.

    Andre Dillard started all of nine games after becoming a first-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2019. The Tennessee Titans still agreed to pay him $29 million over three years.

    NFL teams are desperate to find reliable trench options. But they pay hefty prices for lesser talents.
