The Bengals not only re-signed punter Kevin Huber on Friday, but they also announced that they have re-signed long snapper Clark Harris as well.

"Clark and Kevin are key specialists for us, and it's great to have them in the fold before free agency begins," said head coach Marvin Lewis. "They have played well and are still young guys. They are entering what should be the prime years of their careers."

Harris has snapped the ball 522 times and not a single one has been unplayable since he signed with the team in 2009. If you remember what it was like when Brad St. Louis was the team's long snapper.

These are the first two moves the Bengals have made when it comes to re-signing their free agents, other than placing the franchise tag on defensive end Michael Johnson. There are several other players the team would like to sign, including Andre Smith, Adam Jones, Terence Newman and Thomas Howard, just to name a few.

The new league year begins on on March 12 at 4 p.m., which is when unrestricted free agents can sign with any team around the league.
