National outlet has troublesome situation ending well

One of the main talking points when it came to the Cincinnati Bengals over the last several months was the future of Jonah Williams who had been the team’s starting left tackle the previous three seasons.



The Bengals brought in four-time Pro Bowl left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. on a four-year deal worth $64 million. Soon after, Williams requested a trade although his fifth-year option was picked up last year.



Despite his frustration, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said in March that he expected Williams to be professional about the situation.

“I like everything about Jonah. I’m excited to see him come in and compete at right tackle,” Taylor said. “He’s always been everything we wanted him to be about. We’ve never had issues with him. Hopefully, we can work through this, and he can come in and compete at right tackle for us. That’s what we’re counting on him to do … He’s never been an issue and I don’t anticipate that being an issue.”



These days, things seem to be running a lot smoother and has it reaching the best outcome possible as they have Williams being named the starting right tackle for the Bengals in 2023.

That RT spot is a bit of mess. The Bengals plan to move Jonah Williams there, but he asked for a trade before the draft. Williams is coming off a dislocated knee cap and may not have a choice as to where he plays, especially with over $12.6 million guaranteed due on a fifth-year option

The Bengals signed veteran La’el Collins to play right tackle last offseason. Currently, Collins is rehabbing a torn ACL/MCL.



If Williams does win the job it won’t be because Collins handed it to him. Although he didn’t practice this week, Collins was still getting work in during OTAs.
