Has started every game for four years apparently. That’s gotta mean something

Center version of Preston Brown?

Did the NFL add a new team?  Who are these Bengles?

I think he is a pretty average player, which is what Eric Wood pretty much was as well. He could compete with Groy. Bodine I believe is a center only, whereas Groy could play guard.

background

Bodine has been one of the worst starting offensive linemen in the league since the Bengals traded up in the 2014 NFL Draft to select him, and amid an often-great line led by Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler, he always looked like the one stopping the unit from becoming the best in the NFL. Now those two are gone and Bodine is entering his fourth year in Cincinnati, in which it’s time to step up or step away.

He’s not good but would take Groy’s spot as backup C.

They need depth at the position, it makes sense

Never thought they have liked Groy much and another hole not to have to draft if he signs. Could fit zone scheme better as well.

 

Groy could move to G.

Unless they have watched film and spotted enough 'correctables' to pull up his performance, I think bleh.

McD already said the C job is Groy’s. They still need another guy on the roster who can play C.

He did? Was that in a recent presser?

Everything I researched on him says he sucks. 

 

Found a vid that showed he was good in zone, but too small with short arms to play man.

A fourth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Bodine spent the first the first four years of his career with the Bengals. He won the team’s starting center job in his first preseason, and he has never looked back. Bodine has started 64 games throughout the past four seasons.

The former North Carolina Tar Heel is an effective blocker. According to Pro Football Focus, he allowed just one sack in the 2017 season. He had a pass blocking efficiency rating of 97.6 last season.

Bodine is experienced, but he’s also young. He’ll be just 26 when the 2018 season kicks off. Should Buffalo eventually sign Bodine, he’ll likely compete with Ryan Groy for the starting center role in training camp.

All articles say he was terrible, but still a 4 year starter. Doesn’t add up

Preston Brown, Posluszny, Whitner, plenty of these guys exist.

Agreed. That center quarterback connection and communication is pretty important. It's something.
