All we needed was Rashad Jeanty to sign his deal and the Bengals would complete their restricted free agent signings for the year; well, because today is the deadline. Brandon Johnson signed yesterday, and according to PFT, Rashad Jeanty signed his one-year tender worth $1.545 million today.
According to Bengals.com, in 2008 Jeanty recorded 97 tackles, including 15 on special teams. He tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles and recorded two tackles-for-loss and five quarterback hurries. Jeanty won the 2008 Ed Block Courage Award. Jeanty originally was given the starting SAM linebacker spot after David Pollack suffered a career-ending injury against the Browns.
