Bengals re-sign Robert Geathers under the wire
The Bengals re-signed defensive end Robert Geathers on Tuesday, just minutes before he was set to become an unrestricted free agent.
Just minutes before free agency was set to begin on Tuesday, the Bengals were able to re-sign defensive end Robert Geathers to a three-year deal, $9.5 million deal, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.
Geathers started all 16 games for the Bengals last season and ranked sixth on the team with three sacks. He also had 30 tackles and a tackle for loss. Geathers has had at least three sacks in six of his nine seasons with the Bengals, including a career-high 10.5 in 2006.
The signing means Geathers will return to Cincinnati for his 10th season, becoming only the third defensive lineman in franchise history to play with team for at least 10 seasons.
