Bengals Sign Seventh-Round Tackle Reid Fragel

US PRESSWIRE

According to his Twitter page, tackle Reid Fragel has agreed to a contract with the Bengals. Fragel is the second of the Bengals' ten player draft class to sign with the team.

According to his personal Twitter account, the Cincinnati Bengals have signed seventh-round draft choice, Reid Fragel out of Ohio State University.

Fragel is the second player of the 2013 draft class to sign with the team, after the Bengals agreed to a contract with fellow seventh-rounder T.J. Johnson earlier on Wednesday. The Bengals appear to be working their way backwards through their draft class, as Johnson and Fragel were the last two players selected by the team.

The terms of Fragel's contract are currently unknown, but all indications are that it will be identical to the contract signed by Johnson. Seventh-round compensatory picks typically receive the same value of contracts and Johnson's was worth $2.205 million and included a $45,896 signing bonus.

From NFL.com:

The departure of both of Ohio State’s starting tackles from the 2011 season forced Buckeyes coaches to look for answers at those crucial spots. It was no surprise that they picked Fragel to move inside from his blocking tight end role last spring, and during the offseason his frame easily added the weight necessary to play in the Big Ten. He then went on to start all 12 games at right tackle for the Buckeyes during his senior year.

Fragel was a Detroit all-metro pick as a senior, and played every game his first three years in Columbus. After playing on special teams as a true freshman, he started five games in 2010, catching nine passes for 121 yards and a touchdown against Iowa. Fragel started four games in his junior year, but continued to be mostly used as a blocker in the run game (five receptions, 64 yards) for a team lacking a great passing offense.
