The Cincinnati Bengals continue to bring in new pieces to a team that was an unlikely playoff participant in 2011.

Per a league source, free-agent guard Jacob Bell has agreed to terms on a one-year deal.

Bell fills the roster spot that was created when Nate Livings left Cincinnati for Dallas in the early days of free agency.

Bell spent his first four NFL seasons with the Titans before joining the Rams as a free agent in 2008.

    New pieces yes, good pieces? No.

    I bet Andy Dalton is satisfied with this signing.

    By “bag” did you mean Bengals officials had to actually throw a bag over him and physically drag him to the team facilities. That I believe.

    Hopefully this guy is just backing up DeCastro and Wharton.

    Good move, will compete for a roster spot as a back-up OL.

    I hope deCastro is available when their pick comes up.

    Miami of Ohio boy coming home for a 1 year deal @ minimum with a shot to win a backup job in camp. (He’s a friend of a friend and I am willing to be that’s why he chose Cincy)

    Insurance if they don’t land a top notch G in the draft. Smart play really. They’re setup to draft best available player all the way. And once upon a time Bell was a big time FA OG.

    Hahaha replacement for Livings? No, he’s backup depth. Good signing.

    They probably picked him up in case decastro is gone by time they draft.
    Good pickup.

    Rampant here, sorry… between him and Jason Smith, they nearly got Bradford killed last year, that’s the reality behind the rams woes, not Bradford’s poor play, bengalfan better hope he backs up at best, or Dalton will hit a wall.

    Honestly- one of the worst guards the Rams have ever had. This was Spagnuolo and Devaney’s first big free agent signing and probably a big piece that lead to them both to being fired. As a Rams fan, I was actually worried that Fisher might hold onto him because he was an ex-Titan, but thankfully, even he realized that all this guy is good for is being pushed back into the QB and jumping offsides.

    He was VERY inconsistent with us. I don’t blame him totally for nearly getting SB murdered, cuz it was a total team effort, but he should be a depth player at best.

    OK never heard of him but, from the comments by Rams fans, I guess I shouldn’t be doing back flips that we landed him.
    Not sure why Bobbie Williams wasn’t brought back. Maybe this signing is to gain leverage with Williams cuz it doesn’t sound like he would make the team.
