We look at a couple of best scenarios. EDTShareTweetShareShareWhat’s the best configuration for the Bengals’ offensive line?You have to give the Cincinnati Bengals some credit for recognizing a problem and working pretty hard to fix it. After the offensive line struggled for a couple of seasons, as well as internalizing the observation that two former high picks weren’t working out, the team has embarked on a two-year rebuild of the unit. Of course, any credit given in this regard has to also be tainted because of the allowance of the whole Kevin Zeitler/Andrew Whitworth exodus of 2017. Still, the investment of two first round picks (Billy Price and Jonah Williams) and two Day 3 picks (Rod Taylor and Michael Jordan), as well as the acquisition of six new veteran contracts for players (two from the outside), shows a solid re-commitment to righting the ship.As the Zac Taylor era is officially kicking off with OTAs, some big news occurred in the form of a re-shuffling of the offensive line...again. The biggest news was is in Williams lining up as the starting left tackle, while Cordy Glenn, who manned that spot in 2018, got pushed inside to guard. A sub-headline of the story was that veteran mainstay Clint Boling was out of the alignment. Now, it’s important to note that he’s healing up an injury, but even with the understandable absence White Jonah Williams Jersey , confusing smoke signals about the versatile lineman have been sent. On this week’s episode of The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast, John Sheeran and I discussed the best potential alignments of the unit for 2019. In doing so, there are obviously a number of factors to consider. Politics: Yes, they exist in football too, folks. Whether it’s in handing starting spots immediately to the first-round picks of Williams and Billy Price, or in the continuing preference for Bobby Hart after a subpar 2018 season, hands can be forced. Cincinnati has invested high capital in these three players and they need to find out if they can carry the unit. Continued career development: This is especially true in the case of both Hart and Price, as both didn’t have the strongest campaigns last year. However, Cincinnati holds the belief that both of these players will be critical to the success of the offense this year (which is true), as well as that they will reach their highest potential in 2019. Turn on the tape—even if it’s from college: Many who have followed Price’s career note that he actually had some superior film as a guard, rather than a center at Ohio State. Meanwhile, Trey Hopkins showed a higher NFL value at center last year than Price in his spot starts, while inconsistency was shown at almost every other spot on the line in 2018. Ironically, the Bengals drafted Price’s college replacement this year in Michael Jordan, who also played center and guard with the Buckeyes—but which spot is a better fit? And Black Jonah Williams Jersey , of course, Glenn showed promise as both a tackle and guard at Georgia, so the Bengals are apparently trying to tap his college days. Glenn’s comments about his meeting with Jim Turner: After the team drafted Williams, the new offensive line coach along with Zac Taylor had a couple of heart-to-hearts with Glenn. While part of what’s being appreciated with Taylor amongst his players is his honesty (John Ross III said the same recently about trade rumors), Glenn made it seem that his future with the club this year is at left guard, whether or not Boling is available.Some possible alignmentsThere is a fine line to walk with what to do on the Bengals’ offensive line this year. After shuffling things up the past two seasons and apparently doing the same this offseason, cohesion has not been the name of the game. However, said cohesion is one of the most critical aspects in the success of any offensive line and will need to be built quickly if the Bengals are to be competitive in year one of the Taylor era. So, is it wise to give the mantle of the most important position on the line to a rookie right away? Should the team swap out two or three starters from last year once again? Keep in mind that aside from trying to build cohesion, there is also the need for the new system to be digested from veterans of previous regimes.

The Ravens just knocked off the AFC’s only undefeated team, and get to follow up with a game against the league’s only winless team.So making sure they’re not overconfident against the Bengals is forcing the Ravens coaching staff into liberal use of hyperbole (or something).In discussing the Bengals — who are starting fourth-round rookie Ryan Finley at quarterback — Ravens defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale was doing some of his best salesmanship.“It’s not an 0-8 offense,” Martindale said of the Bengals, via Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com. “We know what this game is. We know how important it is.”Ostensibly, a game against a terrible team counts just as much in the standings as one against a good team. And the Bengals are 25th in yards per game and 29th in points (which isn’t great, but considering they’re 32nd in the league in wins, I guess it’s improvement.)But still.The Bengals still don’t seem to be sure how wide receiver A.J. Green is, and Finley brings an element of the unknown as well. Martindale said they watched his preseason tape, as well as college footage to get a sense of what he can do.
