Bengals Ink Four-Year Deal With Leon Hall

In the wake of the team's final preseason game and after signing left tackle Andrew Whitworth to a two-year extension, the Bengals have come to a deal with the team's best cornerback, Leon Hall. According to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy, the Bengals and Hall have come to terms on a four-year deal worth $39 million.

This is good news for Bengals fans. After losing Johnathan Joseph to the Texans in free agency, many were worried that Leon Hall, whose contract was set to end at the end of the 2011 season, would move on to greener pastures as well. Keeping Hall locked up as a member of the Bengals secondary was a wise move and was considered to be just as important as extending Whitworth's contract.

Since being selected in the first round of the 2007 draft, Hall has been extremely durable, never missing a single game. He has made 258 tackles, had 71 passes defensed and made 18 interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

UPDATE: According to Pro Football Talk, Hall will get $14 million this year and another $6 million by March, giving him a total of $20 million by next year's start of the new league year.
