Atkins, 26, is coming off of a season-ending ACL injury and there haven’t been many updates regarding his status in recent months. Hopefully, he’ll be back at 100 percent to start the regular season.
Cincinnati signed supplemental draft pick DT Lakendrick Ross to a contract earlier in the day to add depth at the defensive tackles position.
The Bengals signed Atkins to massive a six-year contract worth $56.423 million that includes $31 million guaranteed last year. Last year, he was limited to appearing in nine games and totaled 20 tackles and six sacks on the season.
