A veteran on the Cincinnati Bengals offensive line will remain a part of the team.

Nine-year offensive lineman Eric Winston announced the news Tuesday morning via social media.

Details of the deal have not yet been released.

Winston signed with the Bengals in December after tackle Andre Smith went down to injury. Winston started the final two games of the regular season as well as the Bengals’ postseason loss in Indianapolis at right tackle.

He’s played in 126 games with four teams in his NFL career and is the current president of the NFL Players Association.
