The Bengals locked up one of the most underrated tackles in all of football for another two years.

Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Andrew Whitworth agreed to a two-year extension with the Bengals, keeping him under contract until 2015.

Whitworth was arguably one of the best tackles in football last year. He was named the MVP of the team by the Cincinnati Pro Football Writers.

The Bengals had a ton of cap room, and now figure to focus on an extension with cornerback Leon Hall.

UPDATE: The Bengals have confirmed the deal.
