5 potential center options for Cincinnati Bengals in 2022
2. Trey Hopkins
In my other two articles, I’ve put the current starter at the position in question in one of the top two spots and I’m sticking with that trend here.
As much as we want the Bengals to completely revamp this entire line, they’re going to keep two or even three of the same players we already know. With Jonah Williams, he’s the only one who for sure starts on the line next season, just maybe at another position. Quinton Spain is a free agent but I bet he re-signs.
Hopkins is the only one out of this group who the team can save money by cutting. That’s why the organization should part ways with him but if we’re being entirely honest, do we actually think they’ll do that?
Hopkins played well in 2020 and it was devastating when he went down at the end of the season. The injury might have impacted him this past year because, at times, he was not good. Center is a position that needs a major upgrade but the Bengals might give Hopkins another chance.
