The Bengals are adjusting a bit on offense this offseason, after losing coordinator Hue Jackson to a head coaching job and wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency.

But they’re taking small steps to lend some stability there.

The team announced they had signed H-back Ryan Hewitt to a three-year contract extension.

He was entering the final year of his rookie deal, after joining the team as an undrafted free agent from Stanford. He has just one carry and 18 receptions in two seasons, but is a versatile and valuable blocker.

Along with an extension for Giovani Bernard this offseason, the Bengals now have the chance to keep things together for the foreseeable future, and build on what was already a good offense.
