The Buffalo Bills are in desperate need of a Center. Eric Wood announced this past January that he will not be cleared to come back to football due to his neck injury suffered last season. Russell Bodine visited the Bills today. The visit went well.
What does this mean for the Bengals?
- The Bengals won’t have to rely on a Center that doesn’t have the strength for a Center. Bodine has short arms that gives him an extinct disadvantage.
- The Bengals will be picking a top quality Center in the draft. James Daniels is the best fit followed by Billy Price. So far both should be available second round but it really depends on the market for Centers.
- The last resort is moving Jake Fisher to Center. He has explosiveness and the ability to run an offensive line but it is also the hardest position to move to.
For Bengal fans, this has been what they were hoping for. The organization should cut ties with Russell Bodine. Get that quality Center in the draft.
