One thing that the Bengals likely could not do enough of this offseason is building up the offensive line. When a team is historically bad at giving up sacks, there is no such thing as too much change upfront. Bradley Bozeman is someone the team needs to continue targeting even after signing Karras.

Bozeman has been a solid player for Baltimore and is still young enough that the Bengals could sign him to a long-term deal and know that the middle of their offensive line is set for the next few years. After struggling with below-average offensive lines since 2015, having a few years of good play to count on would be a huge relief.

Bozeman is a hot commodity and I would not be surprised to see him sign with a team soon. Not only would this benefit Cincinnati, but it would also take away from a division rival which would feel just as sweet.

With a Bozeman signing the Bengals would have a line of Williams, Karras, Bozeman, Cappa, and would just have to find their right tackle. While not complete, Cincinnati would have a strong middle pocket that should provide plenty of space for Burrow to step up when needed.

Karras could play center if Bozeman isn’t brought in, but he also can play either of the guard spots, so with Cappa at right guard, Karras could play left guard and Bozeman could be the center. Sounds like a good plan, doesn’t it?
