When the Cincinnati Bengals re-signed interior lineman Mike Pollak earlier today, versatility and athleticism were definitely on their minds. According to Bengals.com, new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson wants his linemen to be mobile and Pollack has the athleticism to trap and pull at any position he plays along the offensive line.
“He’s a very athletic and productive player,” said offensive line coach Paul Alexander. “We’re both excited to build on this past season. He really fit into our system and played great.”
Pollak confirmed that he is going to be evaluated at multiple position during the offseason for the Bengals, and that suits him just fine.
“They said they were going to get me some reps at center, but they also might have a need at guard,” Pollak said Saturday from Arizona, where he lives in the offseason. I’m looking forward to a couple of more years of hanging out with these guys and getting back to the playoffs.”
Pollak was a center in college, but has played his entire pro career at the guard spot. He started five games for the Bengals on the right side in 2013.
