The Cincinnati Bengals have signed seventh-round fullback Fui Vakapuna to a four-year contract with a total value of $1.811 million, according to a league source.
Per our source, Vakapuna received a normal percentage raise over last year’s pick at his spot as the 215th overall pick.
Vakapuna also has an escalator clause in the fourth year of the deal.
The 6’0, 260-pounder from Brigham Young started eight games at fullback last season, rushing for 291 yards and three touchdowns on 54 carries.
Vakapuna has drawn favorable comparisons to former Bengals fullback Fahu Tahai.
