The Bengals are keeping one of their high profile free agents, as the team has come to terms on a five-year deal with safety George Iloka.
George Iloka's deal with #Bengals is done: 5 years, $30M. That $6M average is 5th for strong safeties. $18M in first 3 years ranks 2nd.

The Lions had major interest in Iloka, but instead he will come back home instead of testing the open market. The 25-year-old has been solid over his time with the Bengals, and still has growing to do with his physical style of play.
