Quinton Spain

I’m surprised that Quinton Spain is still waiting to be signed by a team in free agency. He finished the 2021 season with a 72.3 PFF grade and while many will remember the missed block he had in the Super Bowl that led to the final sack of Joe Burrow, for the most part, Spain was an asset to the team’s offensive line.

Spain played with the Titans for the first four years of his career and then spent a year and a half in Buffalo before landing with the Bengals during the 2020 season. He jumped back and forth between the two guard spots but started at left guard in all but one of the team’s regular-season games last year.

Left guard just so happens to be the only position on the o-line that doesn’t have a starter in place for the 2022 season. It’s more than likely going to be Jackson Carman manning the left guard position, which is probably why the team hasn’t looked into re-signing Spain.

With Spain’s experience as a starting guard, I figured he’d have found a new NFL home by now but he’s still waiting to get signed.
