Since free agency officially began on March 11, the Cincinnati Bengals have yet to make a deal with a player outside of the organization. That all changed Friday when the team agreed to a deal with offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse.

Newhouse spent the past four season in Green Bay with the packers as a backup lineman. The fifth-round pick in 2010 did appear in all but one game in his past three seasons and even started in two contests. 

"Marshall has played a lot of football for Green Bay. He'll be a quality addition to our line," Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander said. "He's played left tackle and right tackle and has experience in big games."

Cincinnati was in dire need of depth at the offensive line positions after releasing Kyle Cook and losing Anthony Collins to free agency. Collins signed a five-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth $30 million. 
 
Newhouse, who played with Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton at Texas Christian University for three years, may have some versatility at both guard and tackle for next season.
