CINCINNATI — The Bengals' offensive line is the biggest question mark entering 2021.
They added key pieces like Riley Reiff and Jackson Carman this offseason, but was it enough to turn around one of the NFL's worst units?
Their plan may work, but even if it does, there's a decent chance the Bengals will still be looking for offensive line help in 2022.
The good news is one of the NFL's best guards is set to become a free agent.
Brandon Scherff and the Washington Football Team are not expected to reach a long-term deal before Thursday's 4 p.m. deadline according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Washington placed the franchise tag on Scherff for a second straight year, which means he'll make $18 million this season. No long-term deal before the deadline essentially guarantees he's going to become a free agent next offseason.
If Carman plays well and a veteran emerges at right guard, the Bengals might not need to go after Scherff, but it looks like they'll have that option next offseason.
