Bengals Add Another Offensive Lineman After Orlando Brown Jr. Signing
The Cincinnati Bengals already made a massive splash in free agency this week by signing offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. to a four-year, $64 million deal.
That didn't stop them from continuing to upgrade their O-line, however, as they added another offensive lineman on Thursday.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported on Thursday afternoon that Cincinnati is also signing guard Cody Ford.
Ford, 26, was a second-round draft pick by the Buffalo Bills in 2019. He spent his first three seasons with the Bills before being traded to the Arizona Cardinals ahead of the 2022 campaign.
While he began his career as a starter, Ford has become more of a bench player over the last two years, starting just 10 of the 26 games he's appeared in during that stretch. He still figures to provide valuable depth for the Bengals, however, especially given their recent troubles keeping Joe Burrow upright.
With the additions of Brown and Ford, Cincinnati's offensive line is looking much more formidable than it did a few days ago. The Bengals surely have some more moves up their sleeve as well, but their offseason is already off to a great start.
