The Cincinnati Bengals have re-signed Bobby Hart to a three-year contract worth a reported $21 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Hart joined the Bengals on a one-year deal after being waived by the Giants. He went on to start every game at right tackle for one of the worst offensive lines in football last year, and he was easily one of the worst starting tackles in the league.

I’m honestly at a loss for words. I actually thought Adam Schefter may have gotten hacked to report this kind of ridiculous deal. This is by far one of the worst free agent contracts the Bengals have given out in my lifetime.

It’s not like wasting $7 million a year can cripple a franchise, but there has rarely, if ever been a player more undeserving of a contract like this than Hart.

But these are the Bengals, who basically will pay any in-house player that’s been here and played a lot of snaps. That’s apparently all it takes to get a good deal from them, no matter how bad the player may be with said snaps.

Oh, and Hart will make more than Clint Boling, who is set to make around $5 million this year.
