The Cincinnati Bengals are bringing back veteran defensive tackle Mike Daniels.
Daniels signed a one-year deal to stay in the Queen City for $2.5 million.
Cincinnati desperately needed help on the defensive line, so they signed Daniels late in the offseason. Daniels only played in eleven games and didn’t record a sack. Even though he wasn’t productive, he was still one of the most disruptive defensive tackle the Bengals had, which says more about the state of the line than anything else.
The Bengals needed some depth again, so they reached out again to Daniels.
The Bengals have also signed Larry Ogunjobi, who will start alongside D.J. Reader at defensive tackle. Daniels will be a rotational player who will relieve Ogunjobi from time to time. Geno Atkins is still likely to be cut, so the Bengals needed depth at his position.
Daniels was a Pro Bowler as little as four years ago in 2017. That year he had 49 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, and 14 QB hits for the Packers.
He signed with the Lions in 2019, and then with the Bengals in 2020. Daniels was drafted by the Packers in in the fourth round of the 2012 draft, and played there for the first seven years of his career. Before that, he was a defensive linemen at Iowa, and had double-digit sacks in his last two seasons for the Hawkeyes.
