The Cincinnati Bengals beefed up their offensive line during free agency this offseason and folks across the landscape have all liked the improvement on paper.
The camaraderie along the line is also starting to take shape, particularly between the two tackles, Jonah Williams and La’el Collins.
Williams was asked his thoughts on Collins and raved about one of the new protectors of Joe Burrow.
“He was a great tackle in Dallas and he was great tackle at LSU, watching him there, too,” Williams said, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. “I’ve gotten to meet him, work out with him a little bit. He’s super strong and athletic. You can see that watching him on film.
“But he seems like he’s a good guy, too. Really humble. He’s just been working hard, keeping his head down. For somebody who has a lot of hype around him because he’s a great player, he could have come in with a lot more ego and he hasn’t. He’s come in, he’s put in work with the rest of us. I’ve got a good impression so far.”
You certainly have to appreciate the respect Williams already has for Collins and that should help make this pairing a good one on the outside of the line. And a better line means a better Joe Burrow which means a better offense which means a better chance at making a return trip to the Super Bowl.
