Guard Ben Grubbs Could Command A Contract In The "$40 Million Range"

Now if the Cincinnati Bengals decide to make a splash in free agency on Tuesday (we write that with the biggest "I" and "F" in the history of the written word), there's a good chance that they'll target running back and offense guard. And if by happenstance one of those guards that Cincinnati decides to target Baltimore Ravens guard Ben Grubbs, then it won't come cheap.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, Grubbs is expected to command more than fellow Ravens guard Marshal Yanda, a Pro Bowler, who signed a five-year deal worth $32 million with $10 million guaranteed last year. Wilson writes that the Ravens "are unlikely to lock up Grubbs at this stage where he's hours away from a potential contract in the $40 million range."

However Cincinnati doesn't appear to be favorites to show interest in Grubbs, as Wilson writes that:

The Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Cleveland Browns are among the teams expected to show interest in the former first-round draft pick.

That doesn't mean Cincinnati won't show interest eventually. We can't remember the number of times that major free agents end up going to teams that weren't expected to be interested, either from a public stance or the overall belief of unfeasibility. That being said we're not expecting the Bengals to make a play for Grubbs.
