Report: Bengals Sign Defensive Tackle Geno Atkins To Four-Year Deal

Otis Hudson. Dezmon Briscoe. What two things do they have in common? One, they were both drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2010 NFL Draft. Two, they are the only two players from that draft signed with the Bengals. Word has though that they're no longer exclusive to the two-man club.

According to Aaron Wilson, the Bengals have reached an agreement with defensive tackle Geno Atkins to a four-year deal with a "signing bonus slightly over $472,000". Atkins was the Bengals fifth overall pick, the first of four fourth round selections in April.

Dezmon Briscoe was the first to sign with the Bengals late last month with Otis Hudson signing earlier in July.

Three down, six left.

UPDATE: Joe Reedy has more specific contract numbers, writing that the "four-year deal (is) worth $2.262 million (the base plus a signing bonus of $472.450)."
