The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Tuesday that they placed a tender on exclusive-rights free agent cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris. Because the team holds "exclusive rights" on Lewis-Harris (per the name in the previous sentence), the third-year cornerback is unable to negotiate with another team.

It only took a day for him to sign (what's he going to do, negotiate?)

Cincinnati announced on Wednesday that Lewis-Harris signed his one-year tender, giving him $585,000 in compensation for 2015.

Lewis-Harris has played 12 regular season games and two postseason games since joining the team as a college free agent in 2012. After serving a two-game suspension, for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, Lewis-Harris played four games last season but only contributed with one special teams tackle and played only one snap on defense.

Fast-forward to 2016 and the Bengals, as of now, don't have any cornerbacks on their roster with experience -- Darqueze Dennard and Onterio McCalebb are the only cornerbacks signed beyond 2015 as of this posting.
