George Iloka signed a five-year, $30 million deal with the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The Boise State product was set to hit the open market at the start of the new league year Wednesday afternoon, but the Bengals weren't going to let their talented young safety walk without giving him a sizable offer. Iloka, at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds, holds up well against the run and is also solid in coverage as evidenced by his positive Pro Football Focus grades in both categories (+4.7 and +7.2 respectively over the last two seasons). With Wednesday's contract, Iloka will be a fixture in the Bengals secondary for the foreseeable future.
George Iloka left Sunday's game against Pittsburgh with a groin injury and is doubtful to return.
The Cincinnati Bengals have already dropped three starters in this game, but Iloka is the only one on the defensive side of the ball.
George Iloka (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
Iloka is back in action on his balky ankle, but he was limited this week, so he might not be 100% yet.
The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that cornerback Adam Jones left the Week 4 game against the Chiefs with groin and elbow injuries.
Jones was listed as questionable all week due to the latter issue. He has 21 tackles and one interception on the season.
The Bengals' secondary is hurting with safety George Iloka out and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick playing with a wrist injury. If Jones is sidelined for a significant amount of time, look for Leon Hall to play in his place.
