The Bengals today signed OT Marshall Newhouse, an unrestricted free agent who played 47 games with 31 starts for Green Bay over the last four seasons.
Newhouse (6-4, 319; Texas Christian) is a fifth-year NFL player for 2014. He saw action in 14 games with two starts for Green Bay last season. Over 2011-12, he played in every game, with 29 starts. The Packers won the NFC North Division title in each of the last three years, and Newhouse played in all four Green Bay postseason games, with two starts.
“Marshall has played a lot of football for Green Bay; he’ll be a quality addition to our line,” said Paul Alexander, Bengals assistant head coach/offensive line coach. “He’s played left tackle and right tackle and has experience in big games.”
Newhouse was Bengals QB Andy Dalton’s left tackle for Dalton’s first three seasons (2007-09) at Texas Christian. The team went to a bowl game in each of those seasons, and in 2009, when Newhouse was a senior and Dalton a junior, the Horned Frogs posted TCU’s first undefeated regular season in 71 years.
