Will the Bengals Turn Around and Target Experienced Offensive Tackle Trent Brown?

CINCINNATI — Mekhi Becton, a former first-round pick of the Jets, visited the Bengals this week, but he left without reaching an agreement. Becton might be considering their offer or organizing additional trips.

Should the Bengals change course and target Trent Brown?

The former offensive tackle for the Patriots and Raiders is regarded as the best option available and might start right away in Cincinnati. Although Becton, who is only 24 years old, may not have the same upside, Brown, who will soon be 31 years old, is unquestionably more experienced.

He’s played both right and left tackle in the past. Given that Jonah Williams’ departure has left a void in their starting lineup, the Bengals ought to be a desirable destination.

The Bengals could sign Becton because they have a ton of cap room, but Brown would definitely meet the bill if they decide to go with a more experienced player instead.

His listed weight is 370 pounds, and he would add another behemoth to Cincinnati’s trench line. Orlando Brown Jr., the starting left tackle, is 6-8 and 345 pounds.

It wouldn’t be too expensive to sign (Trent) Brown either. Pro Football Focus projects him to sign a $15 million, two-year contract.

If the Bengals decide to change course, especially if they sense that Becton will sign with another team, don’t be startled.
