Bengals Sign Marshall Newhouse

The Bengals have officially signed offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse, the team announced today (Twitter link). An unrestricted free agent, Newhouse met with the Bengals earlier this week.

Newhouse, 25, is coming off his four-year rookie contract with the Packers, who selected him in the fifth round of the 2010 draft. While he was a full-time player in 2011 and 2012, Newhouse saw his playing time reduced in 2013, appearing in just 250 offensive snaps for Green Bay during the regular season.

Although Newhouse was ranked dead last among 76 qualified tackles during the 2011 season by Pro Football Focus’ grades (subscription required), he has shown some signs of improvement since then, particularly as a pass blocker.

  1. Not one Packer fan is going to miss this guy. Slow laterally, penalty prone and often shoved 7 yards deep by nobodies. He went from serviceable to terrible and only played because the Packers lost their 4 or 5 better options to injury. RostEr filler at best.
