Cook Very Well Could Anchor Bengals O-Line

Today’s Dayton Daily News reports that former practice squad player Kyle Cook will anchor the Bengals O-line in 2009:

What the Bengals want and need, Kyle Cook has. The second-year center from Michigan State has taken advantage of his opportunity and seized the starting job, replacing Eric Ghiaciuc, who signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as an unrestricted free agent on April 30. “Kyle’s got the ‘it’ factor,” offensive line coach Paul Alexander said.

“The guys follow his direction and that’s what we’re looking for. You have to take charge. That’s one of the requirements of the job. “You have to make the right calls. You have to synthesize complex things in a hurry and be right. He’s got the brains. He just understands it. He may be one of the smartest guys we’ve had.” Cook signed as an undrafted college free agent with the Minnesota Vikings, who released him on Sept. 1, 2007. Four days later, the Bengals signed him to their practice squad.
