Bengals Currently Negotiating Extensions With Tackle Andrew Whitworth And CB Leon Hall

The Cincinnati Bengals are working on contract extensions with left tackle Andrew Whitworth and cornerback Leon Hall, according to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. Leon Hall is playing the final year under his current contract, expected to make just over $3 million in base salary fro the 2011 season.

Andrew Whitworth, who signed a four-year extension in July of 2008 that included $30 million in new money, is signed through the 2013 season with over $10 million in base salary due over the final three years of that contract -- which obviously suggests that the Bengals are looking to give Whitworth a healthy raise.

The team's 2006 second round pick won the fan vote for offensive tackle last season for the Pro Bowl and allowed only three quarterback sacks last season, which was better than Jake Long, Joe Thomas and Jordan Gross. Even though Leon Hall had a down season (opposing quarterback rating of 84.2), the Bengals need to keep cohesiveness at the position that's still considered thin and inexperienced; especially considering Johnathan Joseph left for free agency.
