Bengals sign Darqueze Dennard

The Bengals have completed their draft pick signings by getting their first-round selection under contract.

The club has signed cornerback Darqueze Dennard, the No. 24 overall pick, to a four-year deal, the team said on its website on Thursday.

At the least, Dennard seems a viable candidate to have a role in “sub” packages for Cincinnati early in his pro career.

The 5-foot-11, 200-pound Michigan State product garnered the Jim Thorpe Award as college football’s top defensive back in 2013 and recorded 167 tackles and 10 interceptions in his Spartans career. He joins a Cincinnati secondary with two key cornerbacks (Adam Jones, Terence Newman) who are 30 or older. Moreover, Leon Hall (30 in December) comes off an Achilles injury.

    That is the whole draft class. I guess signing players is just another thing we beat the Steelers at now.

    At least he won’t have to try to cover Jared Abbrederis every year…
