Report: Bengals, guard Clint Boling agree to five-year deal

Wednesday March 11th, 2015

The Cincinnati Bengals and guard Clint Boling have agreed to a five-year, $26 million deal, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network reported on Tuesday that Boling would re-sign with Cincinnati. 

Boling, who turns 26 in May, was the No. 41 free agent available this spring, according to Greg A. Bedard of The MMQB, and the top guard on the market.

"Developed into a good run-blocking guard but has struggled in pass blocking," Bedard wrote. "Smart and tough, he became a valuable part of a very good Bengals offensive line."

Boling started every game for the Bengals last season. Cincinnati's offensive line allowed the third-fewest sacks in the NFL and its rushing offense gained the 10th-most yards per attempt.

Boling's trainer told Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press on Monday that Boling was interested in signing with the Minnesota Vikings.
