The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that they've re-signed veteran offensive guard Mike Pollak to a three-year deal on Saturday. Geoff Hobson with Bengals.com originally announced the agreement on Friday.

Pollak (6-3, 300; Arizona State) is a seventh-year NFL player in 2014, in his second season with the Bengals. He joined the team as an unrestricted free agent last season. He was inactive for much of the early season due to a preseason knee injury, but played in eight of the last nine games, with five starts at right guard. He also played in the team’s Wild Card playoff game.

The team allowed no sacks in his first three starts and averaged 159.5 rushing yards in the last two of those games.

He has 69 career NFL games played with 46 starts (including postseason), having spent most of his career with Indianapolis.

"Very simply, we are just glad to have Mike back," said Paul Alexander, Bengals assistant head coach/offensive line coach. "He’s a veteran you can count on. When some injuries provided him an opportunity last year, he came through with flying colors for us."
