Cincinnati now has five of their eight draft picks under contract with the only remaining players being their top-three picks.
Bodine’s four-year contract is worth an estimated $2,676,456 which includes a signing bonus of $456,456, according to OverTheCap.com.
The Bengals parted ways with long-time C Kyle Cook back in March and didn’t sign a replacement in free agency, which means Bodine could have a shot at stepping in and starting from day one.
Bodine was an All-ACC honorable mention in 2013. He displayed his strength at this year’s Scouting Combine when he put up 42 reps of 225 pounds.
