Riley Reiff

It was surprising to see Riley Reiff last as far into free agency as he did last year but eventually he met with Joe Burrow and the Bengals and the rest is history.

Reiff was a prominent left tackle during his time with the Lions and Vikings but the Bengals switched him to right tackle where he played decently. Were it not for a late-season injury that sidelined him for the entire playoffs, Reiff might have been more of a priority for Cincinnati to bring back but that won’t happen now that La’el Collins is joining the stripes.

Reiff might not be starting material anymore, especially with the injury, but he could provide a nice depth piece for a team with needs at tackle. He now also has experience at left tackle and at right tackle, which could make him an attractive candidate for a team looking for help on their offensive line.

Signing Reiff this time last year was a solid move for Cincy and if he hadn’t gotten injured, it’d have been looked at as an even better signing. Unfortunately, Reiff’s stock dropped as a result of that injury but he should find a team to hook on with at some point.
