Bengals sign NFLPA president to play offensive line

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Bengals signed offensive tackle Eric Winston Tuesday to bolster their offensive line.

Winston is a nine-year NFL veteran and started 16 games at right offensive tackle from 2007-13 with Houston, Kansas City and Arizona. He most recently played with Seattle in the preseason, but was cut before the start of the season.

Winston is also the president of the NFLPA.

The team has been looking for offensive line depth since losing starting right tackle Andre Smith to a season ending injury.

The Bengals also announced they have waived lineman Jamon Meredith and linebacker J.K. Schaffer (UC and La Salle High School). Schaffer has completed his rehab from concussions that led to his placement on the reserve/injured reserve list.
