Ogbuehi, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2015. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $9,325,682 contract and stands to make base salaries of $1,282,789 and $1,706,684 over the next two years.
The Bengals will have the ability to pick up his fifth-year option in 2018.
This season, Ogbuehi appeared in 14 games for the Bengals and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 65 offensive tackle out of 74 qualifying players.
Carson, 24, wound up signing on with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M back in May. However, he was unfortunately cut loose coming out of the preseason as Cincinnati trimmed their roster down to 53 players.
During his college career, Carson rushed for 2,329 yards on 473 carries (4.9 YPC) to go along with 42 receptions for 305 yards receiving and 21 total touchdowns.
