    Yeah, and even an UDFA is enough to be a significant upgrade over the crap they've had in the recent past. Andre Smith or Eric Winston? Cedric Ogbuehi or Jake Fisher?

    I wasn’t jazzed about Randy when they signed him but he’s been really solid, IMO. They do have a UDFA in camp (Vizcaino) to challenge him but i suspect it’s more of a camp body to lessen the wear on Randy’s leg than anything.

    With one of the weaker offensive lines in the NFL, the Cincinnati Bengals addressed the problem by selecting Jonah Williams with the 11th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft. That pick strengthened the line, but it made it far from formidable.
    Prior to the news of Williams recently being “dinged up”, the Bengals signed former Giantslineman John Jerry, further bolstering their depth up front. However, with injuries as an ever-present concern, Jerry’s ironman reputation likely won him an offer from Cincinnati.
    Jerry, before not signing with a team in 2018, played all 16 games in six straight seasons. While he’s not a top-tier lineman, Jerry does have the ability to make a lasting impact on this Bengals team.
    Per Dayton Daily News’ Laurel Pfahler, Jerry thought his days in the NFL were all but over.
    “It happens fast. “You’re sitting at home on the couch and the next thing you know, you are here. That’s how quick it was for me. … I kind of thought it was over (in the NFL). My wife kept telling me, ‘No, it’s not over. You’ll see.’ Here I am today.”
    The decision to sign Jerry seemed quick. That said, while we still don’t know his full use in Zac Taylor’s system and Jim Turner’s blocking scheme, we do know that he’s ready for the challenge.
    “Being out last year just made me more hungry and I’m just eager to prove myself on a day-to-day basis,” Jerry said.
    With Williams having missed time during minicamp and Billy Price missing most of last season along with a debilitating injury bug typically striking midseason, it’ll be of paramount importance that Cincinnati keep competent people on the line to protect Dalton in a system that’ll value time in the pocket.
    If you view Jerry as competent, that is completely different story.

    Well worth a listen. I caught it over the weekend - a lot in there on Dolagala's really good last day when he got a chance and did something with it. Lap was clearly impressed...

    Start the clock. Dolagala has as much untapped upside as any QB prospect in the last draft. Has the physical tools to start. Conservatively speaking, in two years you might have something. Maybe sooner if he and Taylor hit it off. Taylor's status as a QB whisperer is second to none IMO.

    Finley's early struggles are troubling but probably don't mean a great deal. I think he was drafted to be a dedicated backup. A newer version of McCooter with a 4 year contract.

    I don't worry too much about Finley at this point. But good news about Dolegala - he's a confident kid and it sounds like he wasn't afraid to rip it. Definitely a good start for him. Will be interesting to see if they decide to keep 3 QBs, and if yes, where/if he fits.
