Marshall Newhouse Has Signed With The Bengals

Marshall Newhouse looked like a promising young tackle in 2010-2011, but he didn't progress in 2012 and he completely fell apart in 2013. I'm not surprised the Packers made no attempt to re-sign him:
He is a young player with a lot of experience as a starter, but he got benched for a reason. It wouldn't have taken too much for him to have moved ahead of either David Bakhtiari or Don Barclay last season (both players had a negative grade in 2013 according to Pro Football Focus). With the likely return of both Derek Sherrod and Bryan Bulaga next season, the Packers didn't need Newhouse to provide depth either.

Meanwhile the Bengals just lost their backup tackle to the Buccaneers. The 2014 draft class at tackle isn't deep, so he might be useful to them next season. If he survives training camp.
