The Cincinnati Bengals reportedly want their offensive right tackle back for next season. Anthony Collins started the final six games, the last one being the AFC wildcard loss to the San Diego Chargers at left tackle in 2013. Collins’ production was enough that Bengals want to bring the 28-year-old unrestricted free agent back on a contract.
Collins played fantastic when pass protecting which allowed Andrew Whitworth to start at left guard where he became dominant.
Collins contract he finished out in 2013 had a base salary of $1.8 million. I do not imagine Collins taking any less in the future as he may drive up the price by the way he played his final six games.
The Bengals are the division champs in the AFC North and would like to keep the success as they continue building their team through the draft.
