The Bengals had a tough day in regards to their offensive line yesterday, as they lost both LT Andrew Whitworth and G Kevin Zeitler to the Rams and Browns respectively. It’s a really small consolation, but they managed to maintain at least some continuity by bringing back Winston.
is a former third-round pick of the Texans back in 2006. He played six seasons for the Texans before bouncing around a bit with the Chiefs and Cardinals.
The Bengals signed him to a contract back in 2014 and he has spent the past three years in Cincinnati.
In 2016, Winston appeared in all 16 games for the Bengals and played 279 total snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
