Free agent OL Quinton Spain has been in Cincinnati since Monday afternoon. The Bengals brought him in for a workout with the intention of signing him this week, as first reported by NFL insider Ian Rapoport.
Quinton Spain asked for a release was getting paid well in Buffalo and he is in Cincinnati today for a workout. Interesting, I wonder how much he is paid, I will say a little more than vet minimum— NFL Draft Diamonds (@DraftDiamonds) October 26, 2020
Report: Quinton Spain visiting, likely to sign with Bengals https://t.co/e09KsEIkrk— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) October 27, 2020
After working out and meeting with the team, all that’s left for Spain is to pass the necessary COVID-19 tests in order to officially join the Bengals. Last Tuesday, the Bengals signed Margus Hunt on and played him 21 snaps in his first game back with the team that drafted him, so Spain can potentially suit up and play for the Bengals this week if he signs quickly.
The addition of Spain can’t come soon enough. The Bengals will for sure be without RT Bobby Hart this week against the Tennessee Titans (which is Spain’s former team) and will likely also be down LT Jonah Williams and C Trey Hopkins. Just for depth purposes, they need all the able bodies they can get, and Spain is talented enough to start.
We’ll see shortly if the Bengals close the deal and add a talented offensive lineman.
