The Bengals reportedly agreed to terms with guard Bobbie Williams Saturday, perhaps the team’s most significant deal of the offseason.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news on Twitter. Williams is coming off one of his better seasons and is a force in the running game.
The 33-year-old has played his last six seasons in Cincinnati, missing only three games over that span. The terms of the deal are undisclosed.
UPDATE: The Bengals’ official Twitter account says Williams’ agent is still talking to the team and does not yet have a deal. We suspect it’s a matter of time now.
UPDATE II: Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer says a deal is close, but won’t be completed over the holiday weekend.
