Reader, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Texans back in 2016. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.55 million contract with the Texans.
The Bengals signed Reader to a four-year, $53 million deal in March of 2020, however, he was injured and missed most of the season due to a quadriceps injury.
In 2021, Reader appeared in 14 games for the Bengals and recorded 42 tackles and two sacks.
