Bengals keep OT Dennis Roland

The Bengals made another move to keep their playoff team intact,

agreeing to a new contract on Friday with offensive tackle Dennis

Roland.

Cincinnati has signed eight of its players from last season who

were eligible for unrestricted free agency.

Roland, a sixth-year player, has played in each of the Bengals’

last 67 games, including first-round playoff losses to Houston each

of the last two seasons. He often lines up as an extra tight end in

running formations, providing another blocker.
