Garrett Bolles meets with Bengals and Bills

The Bengals drafted a pair of offensive tackles in the first two rounds of the 2015 draft and they are spending time on Friday with one of the top tackle prospects in this year’s draft class.

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Bengals are meeting with Utah tackle Garrett Bolles. Bolles is one of the 22 players expected to attend the draft later this month.

In addition to the 2015 draft picks — Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher — the Bengals also re-signed Andre Smith as a free agent, but he’s expected to play guard in his second tour in Cincinnati. That could change, of course, and the addition of Bolles or any other tackle would signal that the team hasn’t settled on a new alignment in the wake of losing left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right guard Kevin Zeitler as free agents.

Caplan reports that Bolles also met with the Bills on Thursday. They are set with Cordy Glenn at left tackle, but Bolles could give them an upgrade on their current right tackle options.

    Why doesn’t anybody in the NFL wear red helmets?

    This Eli Manning thing will blow the top off the collectors market. From a reliable source, players are hiring friends to sign cards and merchandise. Unless you see them personally sign, can’t trust it. Both Manning’s.

    The Chiefs have red helmets. Bills’ helmets were red for years.

    I think this is a very smart move by the Bengals. Jake Fisher flopped as a part timer last year and Cedric Ogbuehi has been a huge disappointment after being drafted in the first round in 2015. I thought he was a bit of a reach for a first rounder given he was rehabbing a messed up knee. Maybe this year will be his year, but the Bengals still need OL improvement.

    Leave it to a Pat’s fan to talk about the Mannings on a thread about the Bills and Bengals……can you say ignorant.

    Cincinnati’s offensive line is fine.

    REMEMBER: It’s ALLLLLLLL Andy Dalton’s fault

    The Bengals need a quality option at LT incase Ced flops at LT. As a Bengals fan I would love to see them trade out of the #9 pick to a team that wants a QB and get a OT in the first and OG/C in the second round.
