Bengals Re-Sign Eric Winston

Eric Winston is sticking around Cincinnati. ESPN’s Katherine Terrell reports (via Twitter) that the veteran offensive tackle has signed a one-year deal with the Bengals.

Eric WinstonThe 2006 third-round pick has bounced around the NFL since leaving the Texans following the 2011 season, spending time with the Chiefs, Cardinals, Seahawks, and Bengals. The NFLPA president apparently found a home in Cincinnati, where he’s appeared in 29 games over the past two seasons (four starts). Winston didn’t earn great marks from Pro Football Focus for his performance in 2016, although the website was fond of his run blocking skills.

Winston will presumably return to a backup role in 2017, shadowing starting tackles Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher.

  1. Might as well give up your season tickets right now. The two best offensive lineman gone. Andy dalton will be injured in the first 4 games because the Bengals will have no run game or pass production. Until a family that wants to win owns this team I am through with them. Paul Brown tried to win, Mike Brown may be a fine man but he has no desire to win. Keeps Marvin and let’s life long bengal who were still performing Go and fans Keri buying tickets. It is time to let them move and become Indianapolis fans.
