The Cincinnati Bengals’ offensive line has continued to experience more and more criticism,womens Tony Jefferson Jersey both from fans and the media. While the team did a number of things to improve the roster from the six-win team of 2016, especially with their 11 draft picks, the offensive line still looks like the weakest link on the roster.,womens Justin Tucker Jersey,

gans’ favorite whipping boy has been Russell Bodine. Early in his career,,Since his arrival in the fourth round of the 2014 draft,womens Joe Flaccos JerseyEodine was easy to pick on with so many other talented veterans flanking him. Now in the wake of free agency attrition, Bodine is one of the veterans the team will be highly-dependent upon in 2017.

With so much talent on the defense and a re-stocking of the offensive skill positions this offseason,Authentic C.J. Mosley Jersey Bodine, Jake Fisher and Cedric Ogbuehi are all under intense scrutiny to perform this year. After all,womens Marlon Humphrey Jersey, it’s very possible the Bengals’ quest to get back to the postseason resides in the performance of the offensive line this year.

Recently, questions and comments have largely centered on Bodine (see what I did there?). NFL teams have an opportunity to get some talented veterans on the cheap for rental-like deals during the summer.,Authentic Reggie Ragland Jersey, on both the Orange and Black Insider podcast and through our regular mailbag posts

One of the names that keeps coming up from fans as responses in this regard is former Jets Pro Bowler, there are other aspects that make this potential move logical for the Bengals., Nick Mangold. Aside from talentwomens Shaq Lawson Jersey

Mangold is a local guy, who is originally from Centerville, Ohio and played college ball at Ohio State. He’s likely a Hall of Fame center with seven Pro Bowls to his name, while also fitting into the Mike Brown mold of a high-profile name who could be had on a relatively-cheap deal.Authentic Tony Jefferson Jersey

However, barring an injury., there are reasons why Mangold won’t be an option for the Bengals and why Cincinnati will be sticking with Bodine in 2017Authentic Justin Tucker Jersey,[url]

If there’s one thing that has defined the Brown era, but there have been tangible criticisms in his three years as a starter., it’s in the reluctance of admitting the team making a mistake with a playerAuthentic Eric Weddle Jersey,. We’re not saying Bodine is a mistake

Brown and Marvin Lewis have been very hesitant to pull the plug on embattled starters and/or projects,Regardless, often allowing them to see a contract through when other teams may cut bait. Of course, this usually coincides with their conservative nature in outside free agency,Authentic Joe Flaccos Jersey>, but it’s almost equally as frustrating as the aforementioned offseason approach when the player isn’t performing up to snuff.

There are many examples of this with the Bengals and while Bodine isn’t in the category yet,= Eric Weddle Jersey[/url] Bodine was a guy they made the rare move up for in the draft (just the third time of four in their history) and Paul Alexander likely believes he isn’t done molding the clay., he might be if we’ve seen the peak of his pro career so far. Remember

How many times have we seen Lewis draft an exciting player, only to see him miss significant time because of injury? We’ve heard Lewis talk about talk about the important trait of availability and,Authentic Marlon Humphrey Jersey,even though it might not mean a whole lot to fans, Bodine provides it.

Of 50 career games,Authentic Shaq Lawson Jersey, Bodine has played in and started every one. A big reason the Bengals brought Bodine and his immense upper-body strength was to assist in the running game., including the playoffs

And, while there have been inconsistencies in the aspect over the past few seasons, the team’s rushing offense, has never ranked lower than 13th. While Bodine has had struggles in the NFL in this aspect, in terms of yards per game, he also has been a positive factor as well.womens C.J. Mosley Jersey,
