Ogunjobi, 26, was a third-round pick out of Charlotte in 2017 and started 46 of 48 games for Cleveland over the last three years, following 14 appearances with one start as a rookie. He’s posted 13.5 sacks since taking over a starting role in 2018, and he was part of a defense that ended the league’s longest playoff drought last year.
The Bengals now have addressed the need to find players who can rush and cover with Ogunjobi and Hendrickson joining new cornerbacks Chidobe Awuzie and Mike Hilton. Brown and safety Brandon Wilson, who was re-signed on Tuesday, also add to the moves on defense this offseason.
Now it seems the attention is turning to the offense, as the Bengals seek to add weapons and protection for Joe Burrow. If Reiff’s visit goes well, he would be a key piece on the offensive line, and reports indicate the Bengals also have provided an offer to wide receiver Kenny Golladay, who was set to visit with the Giants, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Reiff, 32, has spent the last four years with the Vikings after opening his career in 2021 with a five-year stint in Detroit. According to ProFootballFocus.com, Reiff allowed just one sack and had just one penalty in 2020. He’s started 127 of 135 games he has played over the last nine years.
Golladay is one of the top receivers on the market, despite playing just five games last year while dealing with a hip flexor injury that some speculated was lingering in part because of contract talks. He was a Pro Bowl pick in 2019 after catching 65 passes for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns.
