The Cincinnati Bengals have signed free agent safety Kavon Frazier, according to his agency. He spent the 2020 season with the Miami Dolphins.

Frazier, weighing in at 6-foot-0 and 220 pounds, is a sixth-year player out of Central Michigan who was originally a sixth-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2016. Primarily a special teams contributor throughout his career, Frazier spent 2016-19 with the Cowboys before joining the Dolphins last year. He has played in 59 career games (two starts) and has 71 tackles, a sack, a pass defense and a forced fumble.

Last year, Frazier finished with a respectable 68.8 PFF grade while appearing in 15 games (no starts). His highest season grade came in 2019 with Dallas as he recorded a 74.4 mark in four games played.

This move gives the Bengals some needed depth at safety, as the team currently has only Jessie Bates, Vonn Bell, Brandon Wilson and Trayvon Henderson under contract heading into the summer. The team also has Ricardo Allen who can play safety or cornerback.

The Bengals have since confirmed the addition of Frazier. Terms of his deal have not yet been disclosed.
