Cincinnati has made a move to improve its defense by adding a cornerback.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, the Bengals have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with Chidobe Awuzie.

The Cowboys selected Awuzie in the second round of the 2017 draft and he spent his first four seasons with the club, playing 49 games and starting 42. He was limited to eight games with six starts in 2020 after suffering a hamstring injury early in the season.

Awuzie has recorded four interceptions, 37 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries in his career.

Awuzie is the second defensive piece Cincinnati has brought in during the negotiating period, as the club agreed to terms with Trey Hendrickson on a four-year deal on Monday.

  1. OMG I pulling whatever hair I have left out!!!! Sign O-LINE free agent!!! Didn’t they learn from last year not addressing offense line immediately go get Tuney before he’s gone!!!

  2. Solid player. Nothing flashes but has good size and strength to match up with bigger receivers. Unfortunate tendency to get grabby when losing positioning and does get burned occasionally. I like the player but much prefer the comp pic.

    Newsflash: Thuney is already gone bro.

  4. Big loss for Dallas. He wasn’t consistent enough but at times he flashed as a legit corner. Wouldn’t be surprised if he became a star in another system

  5. The Bengals have one of the worst lines in football. Yet they sign two corner backs, and a defensive end so far. Looks like we plan on having the defense on the field a lot this year.

  6. Why did they not sign Carl Lawson yet signed Trey Hendrickson for what appears to be the same money?
