One of the most important things an NFL team can do is solidify the offensive line. Remember the years of Priest Holmes running at will on teams? It is no surprise he was running behind a line that had played together for many seasons. Same with the Bengals in the 05 season and the protection the line gave retired QB Carson Palmer.
So with that in mind the Bengals extend the contract of Andrew Whitworth for 2 years. According to Brad Johansen it is a 20 million dollar deal to protect the blind side of Dalton.
Nice job Bengals.
