Bengals Among Teams That Helped Their Quarterback the Most This Offseason

Joe Burrow's supporting cast has improved.
Publish date:

CINCINNATI — Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has plenty of new faces around him this season. 

Guys like A.J. Green, Bobby Hart and Alex Redmond are no longer in town. 

The team selected Ja'Marr Chase with the fifth overall pick, signed Riley Reiff to replace Hart and added multiple offensive linemen in the 2021 NFL Draft. 

Cincinnati was one of three teams that supported their quarterback the most this offseason according to Bryan DeArdo of CBS Sports.

"Playing behind a woeful offensive line, Joe Burrow was hit far too often during his rookie season. His rookie year prematurely ended when he tore his ACL in Week 11. Burrow showed that he was worthy of being the No. 1 pick prior to getting injured, as he was the NFL's passing leader through 10 starts," DeArdo wrote. "The Bengals addressed their offensive line by signing veteran free agent Riley Reiff. They also spent a second-round pick on Clemson tackle Jackson Carman and a fourth-round pick on East Carolina tackle D'Ante Smith. The Bengals strengthened an already solid receiving corps when they selected Burrow's former college teammate, LSU wideout Ja'Marr Chase, with the fifth overall pick. Given these transactions and what he showed in 2020, Burrow should be one of the league's most prolific passers in 2021."

The Giants and the Titans were the other two teams that helped their quarterback the most according to the article. 

Meanwhile, DeArdo says the Packers, Seahawks and Saints helped their quarterback the least.
