Report: Bengals and Morgan Trent agree to four-year deal

The Bengals kicked off a lengthy -- and sometimes painful -- process signing their 2009 NFL draft picks to rookie contracts on Tuesday. Joe Reedy writes that Michigan Cornerback Morgan Trent agreed to a "four-year deal worth $1.85 million with a $112,000 signing bonus." Geoff Hobson writes that the deal could be signed as soon as Wednesday. Trent, a sixth round pick, was somewhat of a head scratcher, having heard that even Wolverine fans weren't impressed with the cornerback. We wondered later where he fits in the team's secondary.

Trent is one of seven cornerbacks that Bengals have heading into training camp. Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall are the starters, while David Jones has the slight advantage for the nickel based on experience. Simeon Castille, Rico Murray and Geoffrey Pope fill out the team's roster of cornerbacks.

Alright. One down. Ten to go.
