The Cincinnati Bengals announced Wednesday that they’ve have agreed to terms with fourth-round DT Andrew Billings.
- Bengals signed FB Andrew Bonnet.
- Bengals waived/injured K Johnathan Brown.
This leaves first-round CB William Jackson III as the last remaining 2016 draft pick to sign his rookie contract.
Billings, 21, was taken with the No. 122 overall pick by the Bengals. It came as a surprise to many to see just how far Billings wound up falling in the draft, considering that some experts had him rated as a first-round pick.
Ultimately, teams didn’t value him as any more than a two-down player, but he landed in a great spot with the Bengals, and will be an interesting name to watch in the coming years.
According to OverTheCap.com, Billings receives a four-year contract worth $2,875,844 to go along with a signing bonus of $535,844.
During his college career at Baylor, Billings recorded 107 tackles, 30 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles.
