Three former players that should join the Bengals’ staff
Former players that should join the Bengals’ staff: Willie Anderson
Willie Anderson is the best right tackle in the history of the Cincinnati Bengals. Standing at 6’5 and weighing in at 340 pounds during his playing days, Anderson had an illustrious 12-year tenure in the orange and black. His run included three first-team all-pro selections and countless opponents put in the dirt.
12 years after hanging up his cleats, Anderson is still loosely involved with the Bengals. He hosts Instagram Live stories often, bringing on other Cincinnati greats to discuss a variety of topics, usually centered around his former team. Between these late-night interactions with fans and his active Twitter account, Anderson has made it known he’d still like to be apart of things going on in the Queen City.
For a Bengals team that has struggled mightily along the offensive trenches the past several years, bringing back one of the best linemen in their history would be a wise move.
Anderson already has an academy geared towards developing linemen at all levels, so he has experience in that department. Adding him as a mentor could pay dividends for a Bengals team that is relying on the quick development of a number of young guys.
It just makes too much sense. Adding Anderson in some way, shape, or form would not only be beneficial for players, but it would be a good way to honor one of the Bengals’ all-time greats.
