1. Quinton Spain

I’m going with the boring route and predicting that Quinton Spain will be the starting left guard for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2022. They clearly like the guy and he was one of the better performers on the o-line last season (not that that’s saying much).

Pro Football Focus listed Spain as their No. 129 best free agent and predicted that he’d earn a three-year deal worth $14.25 million with $4.75 million annually and $6.25 million guaranteed. Bengals fans aren’t shocked to see such a reasonable contract, as Spain is pretty hit or miss.

If the Bengals go big at the other offensive line spots or just other positions overall, they might end up bringing Spain back since he’s familiar with the system. There are certainly better options than Spain but re-signing him just feels like a Bengals kind of move, doesn’t it?
