The Cincinnati Bengals‘ offensive line was their biggest weakness during the course of the 2021 season yet the team managed to make it all the way to the Super Bowl. Had their offensive line been a little bit better, the team very well could be the defending Super Bowl champions right now.
While it was an unfortunate result on the biggest stage, the Bengals’ front office didn’t just sit back and let the position remain a weakness. They took a page out of the Chiefs’ playbook from a year ago and nearly revamped the entire offensive line.
First up was bringing in Buccaneers right guard Alex Cappa and he now gives the team a stable option at a position that has been a revolving door for the franchise in recent years.
Next up was Ted Karras, who offers the ability to play both left guard and center. He’ll likely be slotted in at center unless the team adds another starting center option in the draft.
The biggest addition was La’el Collins, who will slide in at right tackle. Collins rounds out the glass-eating trio that’s joining the reigning AFC champions and he’s going to be a lot of fun to watch.
With the newcomers introduced, let’s check out the Bengals’ offensive line depth chart, with help from the team’s official roster.
