The Cincinnati Bengals have officially signed unrestricted free agent Quinton Spain to a one-year contract for the 2021 season, the team announced Tuesday. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Spain, a seventh-year player in 2021 by way of the West Virginia Mountaineers, was originally a college free agent signee of the Tennessee Titans in 2015. He spent 2015-18 with Tennessee, and then joined the Buffalo Bills for 2019 and the first six weeks of the 2020 season.
Buffalo wound up cutting Spain, and he quickly signed with Cincinnati as a free agent on Oct. 30. He went on to play in each of the Bengals’ final nine games, making eight starts at three different positions (right guard, left guard and right tackle).
For the full 2020 season with Buffalo and Cincinnati, Spain recorded an overall PFF grade of 56.7. The highest grade of his career came in 2016 as a full-time starting left guard, as he recorded an elite 84.2 grade across 14 games (13 starts).
For his career, Spain has played in a combined 79 games with 74 starts for the Titans, Bills and Bengals.
