Free agent safety Nick Scott reached agreement on a three-year, $12 million deal with the Bengals, according to multiple reports.

Scott confirmed it on his social media.

The Rams also had interest in re-signing Scott, who is coming off a career year with 88 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles in 16 starts.

The Rams made Scott a seventh-round draft choice in 2019, and he became a core special teams player with 1,068 special teams snaps in his first three seasons. He played only 109 special teams snaps last season after earning a starting role.

Jessie Bates and Vonn Bell left Cincinnati this offseason, but the Bengals still have Dax Hill, Brandon Wilson, Tycen Anderson and Michael Thomas on the roster at the position.

  1. Solid piece of the puzzle but not sure he should start for the Be gals. Let’s see how it plays out but hopefully the Bengals are not done.

  2. Man the Rams are going to be bad this year. With no cap space, no high draft picks lacking talent everywhere with the worst OL in the NFL, no weapons other than Kupp, injury prone old QB n a defense littered with no holes with no pass rush or good cover guys on the backend the Rams are not only the worst team in the NFCW but probably the NFC. Makes me wonder if Snead is purposely tanking to take Caleb Williams in 2024z

  3. All those tackles means that the Rams D-line & linebackers were getting curb-stomped. That’s an awful lot of tackles for a safety.

  4. I almost…almost…feel sorry for Rams fans. Great to do the MLB thing and stack your roster for a SB win, but dang it’s gotta be rough to watch your team being dismantled 18 months later.

  5. Man, this is what happens after you buy Super Bowl team. just imagine the outrage from the Rams fans had the league not handed it to them last year.

  6. I think Scott is the better athlete, might not be as polished a player as Rapp. His skills might better be suited for this defense.
