Rams agreed to terms with LT Andrew Whitworth, formerly of the Bengals, on a three-year, $36 million contract with $15 million guaranteed.
That ends Whitworth's 11-year stay in Cincinnati. Despite his age (he turned 35 in December), Whitworth remains one of the league's best tackles, earning All-Pro selections in two of his last three seasons. He's an enormous upgrade for a Rams line that struggled to protect Jared Goff last season. With Whitworth taking over at left tackle, draft bust Greg Robinson is expected to try his hand at guard.

Coach Marvin Lewis said the Bengals are "optimistic" they'll be able to re-sign free agent LT Andrew Whitworth.

The Cincinnati Enquirer has maintained seemingly all along that Whitworth will be back with the only team he's ever known, though it remains unclear if the 35-year-old will test the market first. Whitworth will probably give the Bengals an opportunity to match any offer he gets, but if they lose Whitworth and fellow free agent RG Kevin Zeitler, Cincinnati's line will be in big trouble.

Free agent LT Andrew Whitworth is expected to test the open market.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Wednesday that Whitworth was expected to remain in Cincinnati, but the team evidently wants the market to establish the 35-year-old tackle's value. Despite his age, Whitworth remained well above average in 2016. He's missed only two games since 2008.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Bengals will re-sign free agent LT Andrew Whitworth.

Beat reporter Paul Dehner suggests it's already a done deal. Whitworth is the best tackle available in free agency. Re-signing Whitworth means free agent RG Kevin Zeitler likely won't be back.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis suggests free agent LT Andrew Whitworth as a potential target for the Broncos.

The Denver Post has speculated about this match, as well. Klis says the Broncos are moving to a "power scheme," an offensive approach in which Whitworth has spent almost his entire career. Although Whitworth is 35 years old, he will be the best tackle on the market if the Bengals let him get there. Klis notes new Broncos coach Vance Joseph spent 2014-2015 on Cincinnati's coaching staff. The Broncos declined incumbent LT Russell Okung's option on Thursday.

The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala expects the Broncos to give free agent LT Andrew Whitworth a "serious look" when the market opens.

The offensive tackle market -- both in free agency and the draft -- is expected to be pretty barren, which bodes well for Whitworth, who is easily the best one available despite his advanced age (35). Whitworth has said he'd be open to a return to Cincinnati, but he also wants to test the market. He's a candidate for a massive payday with so many teams looking for offensive line help.

Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reports impending free agent LT Andrew Whitworth is expected to test the open market.

"Unless blown away by a massive contract offer from Bengals management, something he's unlikely to receive," Marvez qualifies before adding Whitworth wants to play for a "legitimate Super Bowl contender." This is a surprising report coming just hours after Whitworth told Marvez on the radio he would like to stay with the Bengals and beat writer Paul Dehner said he would be "stunned" if the two sides do not come to an agreement. It is possible this is just a negotiating ploy, but the 35-year-old surely knows his window for a ring is quickly closing. He might want to see what is out there before committing to the Bengals.
Feb 20 - 9:57 PM

Impending free agent LT Andrew Whitworth confirmed his agent is currently in talks with the Bengals, and he hopes to stay in Cincinnati.

Beat writer Paul Dehner would be "stunned" if the two sides don't work out a new contract. Although he turned 35 in December, Whitworth remains one of the more stable left tackles in the sport. He was Pro Football Focus' No. 3 left tackle last season, finishing No. 2 in pass blocking. Whitworth has been manning that spot for a decade now. He's a candidate to re-sign before March.
Feb 20 - 12:15 PM

The player rep for free agent LT Andrew Whitworth plans to open contract talks with the Bengals this week.

Whitworth has said he wants to stay with the Bengals, and Cincinnati should be open to working something out considering how poorly "future" LT Cedric Ogbuehi performed in 2016. 35-year-old Whitworth remains one of the best tackles in the league, but his age should keep the price down. It would not be a surprise if the two sides worked something out before free agency opens in March.

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.

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.
Mon, Oct 24, 2016 03:14:00 PM

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.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 05:55:00 PM

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.
