Nov. 8 (UPI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals are bringing back offensive tackle Eric Winston.
Cincinnati announced the signing on Wednesday. The Bengals placed offensive tackle Jake Fisher on the reserve/non-football illness list in a corresponding transaction.
Fisher played in eight games and had seven starts at right tackle this season for the Bengals. The move ends his 2017 campaign.
Winston was originally a third-round pick by the Houston Texans in the 2006 NFL Draft. He played for the Texans until signing with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012 and the Arizona Cardinals in 2013. Winston joined the Bengals in 2014 before having his contract terminated on Sept. 2 during final roster cuts. The 6-foot-7, 310-pound veteran offensive lineman has played in 157 games and earned 125 starts during his 11-year NFL career. He has appeared in 33 games, starting six times, for the Bengals.
"Happy to be back in Cincy! #WhoDey," Winston tweeted Wednesday.
Winston, 33, serves as the president of the NFL Players Association.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has been sacked 24 times this season, taking the sixth-most in the NFL.
