Bates, who recorded eight tackles (five solo) in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, ended his season with 109 tackles (78 solo), three interceptions, 15 passes defended and one forced fumble in 16 games.

Bates put together a strong third season in Cincinnati, once again hitting triple digits in tackles, recording multiple interceptions and setting a career high in pass breakups. The 24-year-old is under contract for one more season, and although he's yet to record his first career sack, he's otherwise amply demonstrated his diverse skill set over his first three pro campaigns.
