And the parade of restricted free agents, who are now restricted to the team for which they played last year, signing their contracts continues.
The Bengals have announced that guard Evan Mathis has re-signed with the team. He played in 14 games with seven starts in 2009.
He signed with the team as a free agent in 2008. Originally a third-round pick of the Panthers in 2005, Mathis had 15 starts in five prior NFL seasons, all of which came in 2005.
