Cincinnati Bengals move at RG: Sign Brandon Scherff (Washington)
If the Cincinnati Bengals made the first three moves on this list, their offensive line would be in pretty good shape going into next season.
They could, in theory, slide 2021 second-round pick Jackson Carman into the starting lineup at right guard but there is obviously a reason that did not happen despite the necessity in 2021.
With all of their available cap space, the Bengals would be wise to just keep going big. You would ideally love to have at least one of these players on a rookie contract, but with Joe Burrow on his rookie deal for the next three seasons, you can afford to go all out.
Brandon Scherff has been paid very handsomely on the franchise tag the last few seasons by Washington, but he could finally be hitting the open market in 2022.
Scherff has been a Pro Bowl-caliber, All-Pro type of guard when he’s healthy. The problem is, he hasn’t played a full season since 2016.
Still, I think the Bengals should try to sign him and see if they can’t get a hefty majority of the next three seasons out of him.
Scherff was once a very high draft choice out of Iowa, and is a top-flight interior offensive lineman when he’s able to be on the field.
