NFL Insider says Andrew Whitworth was open to Cincinnati Bengals return, the team was not interested

CINCINNATI— Would Andrew Whitworth actually return to the NFL?

NFL Network’s Peter Schrager says the former All-Pro left tackle was open to returning to Cincinnati to help the Bengals in the playoffs, but the team was not interested.

“Whitworth is retired and I’ve become very close to Whitworth and I immediately asked him, ‘Would you come back?’ And he’s like ‘Well, the door’s open.’ And Bengals sources were like ‘we’re good. We’re rolling with the guys we’ve got,'” Schrager said on the Bill Simmons Podcast. “That would have been the Eric Weddle story of this guy coming for the playoffs alone . The whole thing and he’s in good shape to play and they didn’t show much interest in signing him so I think they’re confident.”
