Bengals announce visit with Marshall Newhouse

Tackle Marshall Newhouse started 29 games for the Packers in 2011 and 2012, but the team opted to go with other players instead of returning him to the starting lineup in 2013 after Bryan Bulaga was lost for the season with a knee injury.

That doesn’t send a message of great interest in a continued working relationship and Newhouse is looking for a new team to call his own this offseason. The Bengals announced Tuesday that Newhouse has visited with the team.

With Anthony Collins signing in Tampa, Andrew Whitworth will be moving back to left tackle after kicking inside to guard last season. The Bengals also parted ways with last year’s starting center Kyle Cook, leaving them with a need to address the depth on the offensive line. They visited with Vladimir Ducasse and Uche Nwaneri as part of their search on that front before Newhouse paid them a visit.

Newhouse joined the Packers as a fifth-round pick in 2010 and played in 15 games, starting twice, last season.

  1. The dude declined as his playing time did. For awhile he was not too terrible though. Best of luck to him.

  2. I can’t begin to tell you how much trouble any team is in if they start this guy.
    He gave the entire Packer OLine its “swiss cheese” reputation by himself. Plenty of athleticism, but he just doesn’t like knocking heads with people.
    Seems like a nice guy, but he’s not a football player.

  3. Yep, right on schedule for the Mime Brown F.A. Period. All the good players are gone(including Bengals who left, such as Collins) now Brown will go grab back ups at a discount and plug them into starting roles.

    Same as it ever was. Don’t blame Dalton for the Bengals issues, blame the F.O.

  4. As a Packer fan this guy is probably a 7th lineman at best, someone that can play anything but center.

    He had some bad games, enough that the Packers don’t want him back. However, he was eventually getting blamed for every failure of the line even if it wasn’t his fault.

    He’s probably worth a flier for training camp. Probably would be an OK stopgap if he played guard in between a competent Center and Tackle. If you play him at Tackle he will need help from a TE or RB if he is playing against anyone competent. That was part of where there was a problem with the Packers in that Kuhn/Quarless are the guys who can provide help, if it was any of the other guys, they were below average in pass protection and wouldn’t be good enough to help Newhouse.

  5. The guy did his best when the Packers needed him most. He should be applauded and appreciated in that respect. Unfortunately for him, his services are no longer required.

  6. Please sign him, Cincinnati…

    Anybody but the Packers, please sign him so that Ted Thompson won’t be tempted to give him a new four year contract.

    Marshall Newhouse is horrid.

  7. Newhouse is not as bad as some people are saying he is. He might not be as good as the other Packers linemen but he is a serviceable NFL player. He will find a roster spot somewhere with a lesser team.

    Some of you need reminding that there are worse O-line players in the NFL.

  8. Worst Offensive Lineman I have ever seen play a down in the NFL. Guaranteed to get beat on any given snap. As soon as he had to come into a game it was a certain a sack or tackle in the backfield is coming.
    You know a player is bad when the Packers release him and even the Vikings are not interested. That truly says how bad this guy is. I am thrilled he will never again wear the Green and Gold. I am normally supportive of young players developing and giving them a chance, however this guys is truly a bum that brought disgrace to the Packers…
