Offensive Linemen for Bengals to Sign – No. 1: Nick Easton

I haven’t discussed Nick Easton much as an option for the Bengals but he’s certainly one of the best fits for them in free agency. Easton, a former UDFA out of Harvard, played center and left guard for the Vikings before exclusively playing left guard for the Saints when called upon.

Easton appeared in 22 games in two seasons for New Orleans and was a true reliable depth piece for their o-line. Bengals fans have to be envious of how good the Saints’ offensive line has been in recent years and Easton helped make that happen.

The 29-year-old Harvard product is still available to sign in free agency and could give the Bengals plenty of options if brought in. He’s played both left guard and center, which are two questionable positions for Cincinnati.

If the Bengals don’t agree to terms with Reiter, Easton could be a potential option at center should Trey Hopkins not be healthy enough to start in Week 1. Easton provides a better option than Billy Price, who would currently get the nod if Hopkins can’t start the season opener.

Nick Easton might not be as well-known as some of these options but he’s the best option for the Bengals, other than Austin Reiter, of course.
