Last week reports surfaced that the Cincinnati Bengals and cornerback Adam Jones have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, making this the third season with Cincinnati since originally signing a two-year contract with the Bengals in 2010. Though neck, groin and hamstring injuries have only allowed Jones to play 13 of a possible 32 games during his Bengals career, he's a great option at depth that can start when the team is finding themselves on the wrong side of the injury bug.

We didn't know the contract details when the signing was announced. Now we do.

According to Aaron Wilson, cornerback Adam Jones' one-year contract is worth $950,000 with a handful of incentives, including a $125,000 roster bonus, a $75,000 signing bonus and a $50,000 workout bonus, concluding a base salary of $700,000, which is roughly the league minimum for a player heading into his sixth season.

As of this posting Jones is expected to be the team's third cornerback, but there's plenty of expectation that the team may draft a first-round prospect during the 2012 NFL Draft.
