CINCINNATI — The Bengals knew they needed to upgrade their offensive line this offseason and they took a step in the right direction on Friday. Cincinnati agreed to terms with veteran tackle Riley Reiff a source confirmed with AllBengals.

Jay Morrison of The Athletic was the first to report the news. 

Reiff allowed just one sack in 15 starts last season according to Pro Football Focus. He earned a 71.4 overall grade from PFF and excelled in pass protection.

Reiff visited the team on Thursday and the Bengals got the deal done on Friday morning. 

The 32-year-old was the Vikings starting left tackle last season. He started 15 games in 2020 and has made at least 13 starts in each of the past eight seasons. 

Reiff has shown the willingness to play guard or right tackle in the past, which is exactly what he may end up doing in Cincinnati. 

They like third-year left tackle Jonah Williams. Reiff's versatility makes him a good fit on an offensive line that desperately needed more talent and experience. 

This is a step in the right direction in their quest to protect Joe Burrow.
