Several seasons ago, the Bengals signed Shayne Graham to a five-year deal while he was a restricted free agent. It didn't happen exactly like that. Jacksonville offered Graham a five-year offer sheet in which the Bengals matched. Graham will be entering the final season of his contract.
Different circumstances, but similar results. The Bengals announced on Wednesday the signing of Kyle Larson to a five-year deal. He's fired up. Larson didn't even leave Cincinnati to visit another team. Read the Bengals feature on Larson. Good stuff. He seems like an adopted Cincinnatian all the way. It was the Bengals all the way. Whether or not you like the guy, you love the loyalty and commitment for your stripes.
And yes, I updated our off-season tracker.
