Veteran offensive tackle Eric Winston is heading back to the Bengals.

Winston wrote on Twitter today that he’s back with Cincinnati.

The Bengals’ offensive tackles have struggled this season, particularly in Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars, when tackle Jake Fisher had to leave the game with an illness. Winston, who was released by the Bengals after the preseason and hasn’t played in the NFL this year, could help.

The 33-year-old Winston, who is also president of the NFL Players Association, played in all 16 games for the Bengals last year, with two starts.

  1. Not that we didn’t already know this, but they’re desperate. He was absolutely atrocious last year. I suppose it can’t be any worse than what they already have.

    If only they had some secret super fast top 10 wr stashed away somewhere. That’d probably provide a little spark.

  2. Oh wow, Eric meathead Winston. I have to assume he was the only option at the price the Bungals were offering.

    What a joke.

  3. At this point the Bengals might as well grab a bunch of linemen off of practice squads. This year is unofficially over and Winston is not the solution for the future.

    I guess if it helps prevent Dalton from being obliterated, though, it’s probably still worth doing.

  4. The Bengals O-Line .. Where great College Offensive line players go to die.

    Thanks Paul Alexander. You’re doing a great job with your outdated blocking schemes

    The problem is your QB has a noodle for an arm and the O line cant block me. How good does that shiny new WR doing for a team that cant give the QB 4 seconds in the pocket and when they do the red moron cant get it to him?

  6. Whatever the O-line can’t get any worse….or can it? btw how many times will Dalton throw the deep ball to AJ out of bounds!? Gotta give WR a chance!
