While the Bengals re-signing of Mike Pollak isn’t the flashiest of moves, it could prove to be an impactful one. It also goes to show, as Pollak is the only unrestricted free agent on the Bengals whom has yet to be re-signed, that Cincinnati has high hopes for him. After four solid years in Indianapolis, Pollak’s career became sidetracked due to injuries. In 2011 and 2012, he was able to start only eight games, seven with the Colts and one with the Panthers, before coming to Cincinnati in 2013. Brought in as a utility lineman, Pollak was able to prove his worth once Kevin Zeitler and Clint Boling went down with injuries. Starting in five games for the Bengals, Pollak allowed Cincinnati’s offensive line to remain as one of the best in the NFL. This move may not drastically impact the Bengals offense, but it enables the coaching staff to feel comfortable in knowing that their offensive line is prepared for the eventual injury that almost always occurs. More importantly, depending on how fast Boling is able to return from his ACL injury, Pollak should be given the opportunity to play again, if not start for the long haul. Like this?
