CINCINNATI -- Right guard Bobbie Williams has agreed to a two-year deal to stay with the Cincinnati Bengals, allowing them to keep their offensive line intact from last season.

The 33-year-old lineman started all 17 games at right guard, including a playoff loss to the Jets. Williams has been with the Bengals for the last six seasons, and wanted to stay even though he was an unrestricted free agent.

Williams was the only Bengals lineman to start in his same position last season, when Cincinnati went through a year of transition. The Bengals emphasized the run last year and finished ninth with 128.5 yards per game.
