Bengals re-sign Dennis Roland

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.

    It’s never a good sign if you lose your job to Andre Smith…

    So basically no one else wanted him, and we signed him for depth only.

    One of those necessary, non sexy signings.

    “One of those necessary, non sexy signings.”

    Uuugghhh..I hate when grown men call anything in sports sexy..it’s like nails on a chalkboard.

    Anyway, he provides depth and that’s it. I’m more excited about The Firm more than anyone

    @t8ertot well l6ozbud’s statement should be fine by you then, since he called it non-sexy :)

    do you even know who Andre Smith is? Here’s a hint.. hes not just the fat dude at the combine.

    He played like a first round talent all year last year and is the real deal and the Bengals RT for years to come.
