Bynes had nine tackles (four solo) and one fumble recovery during Monday's 27-17 win over the Steelers. The nine tackles set a season high for the 31-year-old, and the fumble recovery is also his first involvement in a turnover this year. Bynes has 86 tackles (44 solo), one sack and two passes defensed through 14 games this season.
Bynes had eight tackles (two solo) during Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Ravens. The 31-year-old tied his season high with eight tackles, the third time he's done so, and led the defense in the process. Bynes has 35 tackles (14 solo) and one sack through five games.
Bynes had eight tackles in Sunday's loss to the Chargers and also was responsible for many of the defensive calls in early downs, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Bynes and Germaine Pratt logged most of the linebacker snaps and had more of the tackles against the run on Sunday, as the Bengals typically rolled with a 4-2-5 formation rather than a traditional 4-3. Bynes frequently came out on passing downs, however.
Bynes inked a one-year contract with the Bengals on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The 30-year-old spent the past season with the Ravens, producing 46 tackles (23 solo), one sack, four defended passes and two interceptions across 12 regular-season games. Although Bynes logged a rotational role with the Ravens, he's expected to compete with Hardy Nickerson for the starting middle linebacker spot in 2020 for the Bengals.
Bynes recorded 46 tackles (23 solo), one sack, four defended passes and two interceptions across 12 regular-season games with the Ravens in 2019. Bynes also appeared in Baltimore's only playoff contest, during which he made six stops (two solo). The 30-year-old signed with the Ravens in early October, and he averaged 3.8 stops per game through the remainder of the regular season while playing a rotational role. Bynes is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.
