The Bengals officially announced the signing of guard Jacob Bell on Wednesday and they also announced that they have re-signed tackle Dennis Roland.
Roland spent most of 2009 and 2010 as the Bengals’ starting right tackle, but he struggled in pass protection and lost the job to Andre Smith last season. He served as a swing tackle and also saw time as an extra blocking tight end. Roland entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Cowboys in 2006 and also spent time with the Buccaneers.
“Dennis is very good at what he has done for us and we are glad to get him back,” offensive line coach Paul Alexander said in a statement from the club.
The Bengals have added Bell and Travelle Wharton to their offensive line this offseason. Guard Nate Livings left for Dallas as a free agent.
