Bengals releasing La’el Collins has fans confused

The Cincinnati Bengals pulled a shocker on Tuesday with the release of offensive tackle La’el Collins.

Collins had been rehabbing a knee injury this offseason and started this year on the PUP list.

While Collins did that, the Bengals brought over Orlando Brown Jr. to start at left tackle and shifted Jonah Williams to right tackle.

Moving forward without Williams, the Bengals will rely on D’Ante Smith, Jackson Carman and Cody Ford to play backup tackle roles when necessary.

Understandably, the move left some Bengals fans confused, especially given the team’s recent history with poor depth — and the team not explaining the move while announcing it didn’t help.
