Impending free agent LT Andrew Whitworth hopes to be back with the Bengals next season.
Whitworth just turned 35 this month, but he remains one of the best left tackles in the league. "I think they want me back. But I’ve been in the league long enough to know you never know what the heck goes on," Whitworth said. "I believe both things, that I want to be back and they want me to be back, and hopefully we can find a way to make that work." Cincinnati drafted Whitworth's likely successor in Cedric Ogbuehi in 2015, but Ogbuehi struggled on the right side this season. The Bengals could move Whitworth to guard for the final two games to see if Ogbuehi fares better on the left before making their final decision. Thu, Dec 22, 2016 10:32:00 AM

The Bengals could move LT Andrew Whitworth to guard for the final two games.

With Clint Boling (shoulder) sidelined, Whitworth is practicing at guard this week. Whitworth is the Bengals' best pass blocker, but isn't a lock to be back with his contact up after this season. Moving Whitworth inside would allow the Bengals to give Cedric Ogbuehi an extended look at left tackle.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

That puts him on track to play Sunday against Washington. Whitworth owns PFF's third-highest tackle grade out of 77 qualifiers this season.

The Bengals expect LT Andrew Whitworth (concussion) to be cleared for Sunday's game in London against the Redskins.

Whitworth has missed only two games in his 11-year career. He should be out there for Week 8.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth is in the concussion protocol.

He'll be questionable for Week 8, where the Bengals face an underrated Redskins pass rush. The Bengals would likely turn to Jake Fisher if Whitworth can't go.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth said he would be willing to play guard again if it is necessary.

Whitworth is locked in at left tackle this season, but he is entering the final year of his contract and will turn 35 in December. If he decides to continue playing after this year, it is possible the Bengals or another team ask him to move inside to guard, where he began his career and started six games in 2013. Whitworth earned his first All-Pro selection last season.

New Bengals OC Ken Zampese confirmed Andrew Whitworth will stay at left tackle in 2016.

The Bengals used last year's top two draft picks on offensive tackles, but Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher will likely compete to replace free agent Andre Smith on the right side. Neither will take Whitworth's job. "Whit is a Pro Bowl left tackle," Zampese said. "That’s what he is. His future is active and over there on the left." Whitworth earned PFF's No. 4 overall tackle grade in 2015.

Bengals signed LT Andrew Whitworth to a one-year, $9 million extension through 2016.

Whitworth said himself he would not be back with the Bengals following the 2015 season, but both sides apparently had a change of heart. Whitworth has started all but seven games for Cincinnati at left tackle since 2009 and has been one of the best blindside protectors in the league over that span. He is a big part of the reason Andy Dalton has yet to be sacked this season. Whitworth can also play left guard, where he may land in 2016 if first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi progresses as the Bengals hope.

Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson said it is unlikely the Bengals trade any of their offensive tackles.

On the surface, starting tackles Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith look to be surplus to requirements after the Bengals spent their first two picks on offensive tackles in the 2015 draft. The issue is first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi is unlikely to be ready for the start of the season, and Cincinnati would likely prefer second-round pick Jake Fisher to spend some time developing on the bench. The Giants and Broncos will have to look elsewhere to help their banged up offensive lines.

A tweet from Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth's Twitter account on Wednesday stated that owner Mike Brown has informed Whitworth that he will not be re-signed after the 2015 season.

Like RT Andre Smith, Whitworth is in a contract year. The Bengals used their first- and second-round picks on tackles, and Whitworth is known to be frustrated with the only organization he's ever known. "Mike Brown told me I'm done here," the tweet read. "Said I can play this year and go home. So I told him I want a raise or I'll sit my ass at home." Later, Whitworth attributed the tweet to his wife and claimed it was "intended to be sent as a private message" to a teammate. The tweet has since been deleted, and Whitworth's account is now private.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth is frustrated about his contract status, and believes the team hasn't been straight with him about his future.

Headed into his age-32 season, Whitworth is due $5 million in the final year of his contract. The Bengals used their first-round pick on OT Cedric Ogbuehi, and a second-rounder on Jake Fisher. The writing is on the wall for Whitworth, while contract-year RT Andre Smith is scarcely in a better position.

Bengals OL Andrew Whitworth will return to left tackle in 2014.

This was always the expectation after the Bengals lost Anthony Collins to the Bucs. Whitworth was a beast after shifting to left guard last Week 13, but hardly struggled on the blindside before the move. Now 32, Whitworth is signed through 2015.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth would "prefer to play left tackle."

Whitworth may be a victim of his own success as he was an above average run blocker after switching to left guard halfway through 2013. New Bengals OC Hue Jackson believes in the power-run game, and Whitworth's physicality would be a great asset on the interior line.

The Bengals may explore moving LT Andrew Whitworth to left guard permanently under new OC Hue Jackson.

Jackson is a power-blocking proponent, and Whitworth's "violent" playing style makes him a strong fit at left guard, where he flourished in six starts to close out last season. Whitworth kicking inside hinges on the Bengals' ability to re-sign free agent LT Anthony Collins, who shouldn't be cheap to retain.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth suffered a concussion in Wednesday's practice, and is uncertain for Week 16.

It gives Whitworth precious little time to get cleared for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He'll almost certainly be out, leaving Anthony Collins to man Andy Dalton's blindside. Collins started in Week 1 as Whitworth recovered from a knee injury. It's a concern, but not enough to downgrade Dalton from the ranks of the QB1s in a dream matchup.
