The Cincinnati Bengals have officially re-signed offensive guard Alex Redmond to a one-year contract. Redmond signed the restricted free agent tender the Bengals extended to him on March 16.
Redmond, a fourth-year player in 2020, originally was a college free agent signee of the Bengals in 2016. He has played in 23 career games with 17 starts.
In 2018, Redmond started 15 games at right guard and helped running back Joe Mixon’s AFC-best 1,168 rushing yards.
This past season, Redmond missed the first four games due to a PED suspension, but he still ended up starting briefly at right guard when John Miller was injured.
However, Redmond suffered an elbow injury during pregame warmups prior to the Week 12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and that ultimately led to him being placed on injured reserve.
Now, Redmond will compete with Billy Price, Xavier Su’a Filo, Michael Jordan and O’Shea Dugas for one of the starting guard spots.
