The Cincinnati Bengals have locked up their No. 1 cornerback for four more years.
Leon Hall has signed a four-year, $39 million extension that keeps him in Cincinnati through the 2015 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
PFT has confirmed that the deal will pay Hall $14 million this year and $20 million by March.
Hall was the Bengals’ first-round pick in 2007 and has played in all 64 games, starting all but six early in his rookie year. Re-signing him became a major priority when cornerback Johnathan Joseph left Cincinnati for Houston.
After the signing of offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, the Bengals have now spent significant money this week extending two of their top veterans.
