The Cincinnati Bengals have signed first-round selection cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, the team announced on Friday. On Thursday we projected Kirkpatrick would receive roughly something in the neighborhood of $8.5 million to $8.8 million with most of it guaranteed and a signing bonus in the range of 4.8 million and $5 million. Terms are not yet disclosed.

Back to our projections. The New York Jets signed Quinton Coples on Thursday to a four-year deal worth $8.8 million, fully guaranteed, including a $4.8 million signing bonus.

Selection/Player Years Total Signing Bonus
Last Year's No. 17 (Nate Solder) Four $8.54M $4.71M
This Year's No. 15 (Bruce Irvin) Four $9.32M $5.23M
This Year's No. 16 (Quinton Coples) Four $8.8M $4.8M
Dre Kirkpatrick (Projected) Four $8.5M-$8.8M $4.8M-$5M
This Year's No. 18 (Melvin Ingram) Four $8.39M $4.54M

We're assuming here.

The total projected numbers from Thursday yare probably close to $8.5 million and $8.6 million with a signing bonus less than $4.8 million (maybe something in the 4.6 to 4.7 range).

Either way that's six Bengals signed to contract leaving offensive guard Kevin Zeitler, defensive tackle Brandon Thompson, wide receiver Mohamed Sanu and running back Daniel Herron.
