After the offensive line cost the Cincinnati Bengals a Super Bowl victory, the organization wisely went to work in making sure the unit protecting Joe Burrow was much better in 2022.
The Bengals knew that the offensive line wasn’t in great condition entering the 2021 season but to be fair, no one expected this team to reach the Super Bowl after they had won just four games the year before.
The offensive line was responsible for Joe Burrow getting injured and missing the final six games of his rookie year. They were pretty shaky throughout Burrow’s second season and if the o-line was just a smidge better, this team very well could be the reigning Super Bowl champions right now.
At least the loss pushed the front office to actually make the o-line better, which they did by signing Alex Cappa, La’el Collins, and Ted Karras to fill three positions for the 2022 season and beyond.
With new faces coming in to make the offensive line better through free agency and also a few names joining the team through the draft and undrafted free agency, let’s check out what the offensive line depth chart might look like this year.
