The Cincinnati Bengals announced that they’ve signed nine players future/reserve contracts for the 2018 season.
The full list includes:
- LB Carl Bradford
- K Jon Brown
- LB Connor Harris
- T Javarius Leamon
- G Oni Omoile
- TE Scott Orndoff
- CB Sojourn Shelton
- SS Robenson Therezie
- WR Kermit Whitfield
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Brown, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Louisville back in May of last year. He was, unfortunately, waived with an injury designation a few weeks later and he later reverted to the Bengals’ injured reserve before they cut him loose during the final week of the preseason.
Brown returned to the Bengals on a future/reserve contract this past January only to be cut loose at the start of training camp. Cincinnati re-signed him to their practice squad last week.
Brown has yet to appear in an NFL game.
