Bengals Offensive Line Grows with Massive Tackle Duo

The Cincinnati Bengals made a big splash in free agency, signing two of the biggest and most talented offensive tackles on the market in Trent Brown and Orlando Brown Jr. This move signals a major commitment to improving the Bengals offensive line that has struggled to protect franchise quarterback Joe Burrow at times.

With the recent signing of Jonah Williams by the Arizona Cardinals last week, there was a clear opening for Cincinnati.

Trent Brown, a massive 6-foot-8, 380-pound mauler, joins the Bengals after spending last season with the New England Patriots. The 29-year-old is one of the most physically imposing offensive linemen in the NFL and has been a force in the running game throughout his career with the Patriots, Raiders, and 49ers. His ability to move defenders off the ball should boost the Bengals’ rushing attack.

Orlando Brown Jr., also an imposing figure at 6-foot-8 and 345 pounds, comes to Cincinnati after four seasons as the starting left tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs. The 26-year-old has already established himself as one of the premier blind-side protectors in the league, making the Pro Bowl in 2020 and 2021. His addition should significantly improve pass protection for Burrow.

Together, Trent and Orlando Brown form arguably the most formidable tackle tandem in the NFL. Their size, length, and power are unmatched. Assuming they can stay healthy, this pair of giants has the potential to transform the Bengals offensive line into one of the league’s best units.

Of course, questions remain about how quickly this revamped line can gel, but the upside is tremendous. If the Browns can pave the way for an effective ground attack while keeping Burrow’s jersey clean, the Bengals’ offense could regain its explosive 2021 form when Cincinnati came up just short of a Super Bowl title.

The path to the Bengals’ first-ever Lombardi Trophy may start by unleashing the massive Browns on opposing defensive fronts. Their arrival gives the Bengals offensive line a scary new dimension.
