Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center.
While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...
It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white.
But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

Jeremy Fowler spoke to a personnel director of an NFL team about his favorite under-radar free agents.
According to the personnel director, Ravens OLB Pernell McPhee and Bengals G Clint Boling are his two favorites.
The Cincinnati Bengals finished the 2014 season with a record of 10-5-1. They finished second in the AFC North and were the fifth seed in the playoffs. The Bengals’ offense relied mainly on their two all-star running backs. The passing game was mediocre. The offensive line does not get tons of credit but they are a major part of Cincinnati’s wins.
Cincinnati’s offensive line...
According to Coley Harvey, re-signing OL Clint Boling and MLB Rey Maualuga are likely to atop the Bengals’ list of priorities when it comes to free agency.
If the Bengals were to allow TE Jermaine Gresham to leave in free agency, Harvey would target Browns TE Jordan Cameron. However, Harvey doesn’t see Gresham’s departure as a foregone conclusion.
CINCINNATI -- Germ warfare is spreading throughout the Bengals locker room. As soon as one person starts turning the corner, another seemingly goes down.
Cornerback Adam Jones and left guard Clint Boling are the latest patients to miss practice time as the Bengals continue preparing for Sunday night's game at Pittsburgh to decide the winner of the AFC North. Even head coach Marvin...
CINCINNATI -- Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander knows one truism about his profession.
"You're not going to go 16 games with the same starting offensive line," said Alexander. "It's the way the NFL is."
For the second year in a row the Bengals are having to deal with a significant offensive line shuffle because of an injury to a starter late in the season. Last season it...

CINCINNATI -- Clint Boling will make his first career start at right tackle Sunday when the Bengals host Pittsburgh in a key AFC North matchup.
Boling is expected to move outside as the Bengals continue to look for a solution to the loss of Andre Smith to a triceps tear two weeks ago. Marshall Newhouse started last week at Tampa Bay while Boling remained at his normal left guard...

For more than a century, football teams from the University of Florida and the University of Georgia have met on the gridiron.
These college programs dislike each other to such a high degree that they can’t even agree on their collective history. Georgia believes the series record is 50-40-2 in its favor; Florida counts that mark at 49-40-2. The 1904 game, won by Georgia 52-0...
A trio of wounded Bengals are inching ever so closer to returning to the gridiron. Offensive lineman Clint Boling and defensive tackle Geno Atkins are recovering from torn ACLs suffered last season, and while Boling's rehab appears to be going smoothly, things are a bit murkier for Atkins. Leon Hall, meanwhile is well on his way to recovering from his Achilles injury.Atkins tore...

When it comes to grading team’s in the NFL Draft, it takes 3 years to properly asses a team’s success. Earlier this week, I graded the Miami Dolphins draft.

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...
According to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals.com, the Bengals would like to retain free agent OT Anthony Collins.
Hobson mentions that there is a chance that LT Andrew Whitworth could be moved to left guard depending on what happens with Clint Boling who is coming off of an ACL injury, which means they may need some additional offensive line depth.
Hobson adds that the Bengals liked...

The Steelers were obviously looking...
Andrew Whitworth doesn't mind moving.
The Pro Bowl left tackle got shifted inside the Bengals line when left guard Clint Boling tore a knee ligament during a 17-10 win in San Diego on Sunday. Whitworth might just stay at the guard spot when the Bengals (8-4) host the Indianapolis Colts (8-4) on Sunday.
It's a move that Whitworth embraces. He played guard earlier in his career....
