Bengals Making A Push To Sign Andrew Whitworth, Kyle Cook And Leon Hall To Contract Extensions

According to Geoff Hobson of the Mothership, the Cincinnati Bengals are going to "make a push" to sign cornerback Leon Hall, center Kyle Cook and offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth to long-term extensions. Hall and Cook will be unrestricted free agents at the end of the season while Whitworth's current contract runs through the end of the 2013 season.

Hall, who earned $995,000 in base salary in 2010, is scheduled to see a significant pay increase this year, earning over $3 million in base salary alone. Whitworth is scheduled to earn another $10.275 million in base salary over the next three seasons to finish out a contract extension from his rookie deal that included over $30 million in new money.

Cook signed a one-year deal as a restricted free agent in late July that will pay him $1.835 million. Cook has started every game for the Cincinnati Bengals over the past two seasons, eventually replacing the ineffective Eric Ghiacuic whose performance Chad Ochocinco once called "a distraction."
