Bengals hang onto Mike Pollak with three-year deal

The Bengals took care of one item on their shopping list Thursday, hanging onto versatile offensive lineman Mike Pollak.

Geoff Hobson of the team’s official website reported the agreement, and Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reported it was a three-year deal.

Pollak joined the Bengals last year on a one-year deal, and played well for them when guard Kevin Zeitler was out for a month because of a foot problem. The Bengals also have some question marks about other interior blockers because of injuries, so keeping Pollak around was good insurance.

Of course, that demands that Pollak stay healthy himself.

The former second-round pick of the Colts only played one game during his one season with the Panthers thanks to a shoulder injury, and missed the first seven games of his Bengals career with a knee problem.

    How about signing a REAL guard and REAL center instead of playing Clint Boling and Kyle Cook?!?

    Pollak did well when he was needed. Good depth move.

    This guy couldnt cut it with the Colts, he was absolutely awful. Now hes getting a 3 year deal with Cincy?? Wow

    0-3 when it matters Rusty. Oh and FlushdownMikeBorwn your right the talent across the board is one of the best in the league… so if they still can’t win a single meaningful January game with a stacked unit what in the world would make think they will go deep? Face it Cincy fans your team just isn’t built mentally to win meaningful games. Never has been and never will be. It’s your culture and identity. I’ll even give you the name of my top secret source who provides me with that information… his name is History.

    By “going deep in the playoffs” I’m guessing you mean they’ll lose their first game by LESS than 10 points. Aim high.

    Your buddy History reminded me that the last time the Steelers won a playoff game, Anthony Weiner was still a respected member of Congress.

    Not even sure there was a Congress the last time the bengals won a playoff game.

    Hey, that was almost funny…

    Still beats sitting at home watching the playoffs. You’ve gotten very familiar with how that feels.

    Better than ANY Steelers OLineman!

    I love how irrelevant the Steelers have become to the national football league when it comes to being capable of winning a superbowl……

    feels soooo good. Old, battered and worthless. So they attack boards all day long.

    Who Dey
