Bengals Worked Out Philadelphia Guard Max Jean-Gilles

According to ESPN Senior Writer John Clayton, the Cincinnati Bengals worked out offensive guard Max Jean-Gilles on Tuesday. A former Eagles fourth-round pick out of Georgia University (imagine that) during the 2006 NFL Draft, Jean-Gilles played 42 games and started 26 during his five-year career with Philadelphia. According to Pro Football Focus' grading system, Jean-Gilles is often negatively scored (though not by much), only allowing two quarterback sacks in the past three seasons.

Cincinnati signed Arizona Cardinals guard Deuce Lutui last week, but the agreement was voided after he failed the team physical reportedly because he was over-weight (I suppose the eye test of someone being overweight is a carry-over effect from the old medical regime's philosophy of trusting a player's word that they're healthy instead of conducting a rigorous examine of a knee known to have had recent problems... just saying).

Behind Bobbie Williams, Clint Boling and (begrudgingly) Nate Livings, the Bengals depth at guard leaves a lot to be desired.
