The Bengals have agreed to terms with second round defensive tackle Devon Still.
Financial terms of the four-year contract were not disclosed, but Still is expected to receive a signing bonus of around $1.18 million on a total contract worth around $3.8 million.
The 6-foot-5, 303-pound Still was a two-year starter at Penn State University, totaling 113 tackles, including 32.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks with four passes defensed and a forced fumble. Still was named the Big Ten’s Nagurski-Woodson Defensive Player of the Year in 2011.
Geno Atkins and Domata Peko are scheduled to start at defensive tackle for the Bengals, but Still should see plenty of playing time as a rookie and could push for a starting job this summer.
In addition to signing Still, the Bengals announced the signing of fifth round wide receiver Marvin Jones, a 6-foot-2, 199-pounder from California who ran a 4.46-40 and did 22 reps on the bench press at the Combine. During a 43-game career at Berkeley, Jones caught 156 passes for 2,270 yards and 13 touchdowns, including 62 receptions for 846 yards and three touchdowns as a senior.
Jones averaged 7.3 yards as a punt returner last season and his ability to return kicks and punts could be his ticket to a spot on the 53-man roster.
