Preston Brown to the Bengals!

The Bengals continue to surprise us by making moves in free agency.

The latest decision from the team is signing Cincinnati native and former Bills linebacker Preston Brown to a one-year deal.

Brown tweeted his excitement with the following GIF as he’s anxious to get home to Cincinnati and hit the field with his new teammates. He also reportedly turned down better offers to take a hometown discount with the Bengals.

I also took to Facebook live to talk about the move and what it means for the Bengals, which you can watch above. If you don’t see the video at the top of the page, click here.

There’s always the outliers, but most Bengals fans were excited about Brown’s addition to the team. This gives the Bengals the NFL’s 2017 tackle leader and a durable player at the linebacker position where the Bengals struggled greatly last season and had to rely on a number of unreliable players during the course of the season.

Brown hasn’t missed a game in his four year NFL career and has started 62/64 games since entering the league.

Here’s a collection of social media reactions to the news of the Brown signing.
