Cincinnati Bengals are reportedly turning down Billy Price’s fifth year option

CINCINNATI – The Bengals turned down Billy Price’s option for the fifth year for the 2022 season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The 26-year-old has appeared in 42 games and made 19 starts in three seasons. The Bengals took Price with them in the first round (21st overall round) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Ohio State alum is slated to become a free agent after the 2021 campaign.

This was an easy decision for the front office in Bengals. If they had exercised Price’s option, they should have paid him over $ 10 million in 2022.

Injuries derailed his first two seasons with the Bengals and he only made one start in 2020. Chances are Price will be Cincinnati’s launch center in week 1, depending on what happens to Trey Hopkins’ rehab and what the Bengals are doing in the 2021 NFL Draft.
