Bengals add to O-line

Posted Jun 1, 2010


Sowells
In an effort to give their offensive line some numbers, the Bengals on Tuesday signed fourth-year guard-tackle Isaac Sowells.

The 6-3, 320-pound Sowells was a fourth-round draft selection by Cleveland out of Indiana in 2006. He played 17 games with the Browns in three years before they waived him just before the start of last season, and he sat out ’09.

With guard Jason Shirley feared lost for the season with a ruptured Achilles, center Jonathan Luigs (hip) not expected on the field until training camp, and right tackle Andre Smith coming off foot surgery, the Bengals are looking to ease the number crunch.

They now have 89 players on the roster and all but nine draft picks under contract. They can go to training camp with only 80 players under contract.
