The Bengals signed wide receiver Cody Core on Saturday.

Core was a sixth-round draft pick last weekend. He becomes the first Bengals draft choice to finalize a contract with the team.

Core was the No. 2 wide receiver last season at Ole Miss, playing alongside Vikings first-round pick Laquon Treadwell. He ranked fifth in the SEC last season at 17.4 yards per catch and had all 10 of his career touchdowns over his final two college seasons.

The Bengals are holding a rookie minicamp this weekend.
