Bengals Offensive Line Options – No. 1: Trai Turner

The best offensive guard option available in free agency is Trai Turner, who the Bengals reached out to earlier in the offseason. Unfortunately, a deal wasn’t struck and the Bengals decided to re-sign Quinton Spain instead, who has a good shot at starting at left guard this year.


Turner spent the first six years of his career with the Panthers and played for the Chargers last year. He’s mostly played right guard during his career, which is where the Bengals are likely to start rookie Jackson Carman, but he could either switch to left guard or Turner could be the left guard instead.

Turner, a former third-round pick out of LSU, just turned 28 and still has plenty left in the tank. He’s been named to five Pro Bowls and despite only playing in nine games last year, is absolutely worth signing and adding as a depth piece.

All four of these options are players who could start (assuming they’re healthy) and while the Bengals don’t necessarily need starters, what harm does it do to bring any of them in? There’s still a competition going on at guard and Turner and Easton would immediately be qualified to steal the job.

What do you think of these options, Bengals fans? Do you agree that the team needs to look into bringing in another offensive lineman or should they stick with what they have?
