5 free agents the Cincinnati Bengals could re-sign for 2022 season
2. Quinton Spain
There’s only one spot on the new-and-improved Bengals offensive line that doesn’t have a surefire starter there and it’s at left guard. Quinton Spain manned left guard last year and did a decent job in the position but it feels like left guard might be Jackson Carman’s position to lose.
If Spain could be had for a reasonable price, there’s no reason for the Bengals to pass on him. He did a nice job at the position in 2021 and while he’s not a superstar, he presents a better option at left guard than Carman does.
1. Larry Ogunjobi
This time last week, Larry Ogunjobi was set to become a member of the Chicago Bears. Unfortunately for the two sides, Ogunjobi didn’t pass his physical and is now left searching for a new NFL home. The Bengals should try their best to keep Ogunjobi and maybe re-sign him on a one-year deal.
Now, yes, Ogunjobi didn’t pass his physical but if the Bengals give him less money, they’d be taking less of a risk by bringing him back. They re-signed B.J. Hill already for less money than what Ogunjobi was going to receive and Hill would be the starter.
Ogunjobi presents a pass-rushing presence who is familiar with the defense and could pick up where he left off in the Queen City. The stripes should absolutely make an attempt to re-sign him.
Would you want to see the Bengals re-sign any of these guys?
