Bengals Ink CB Dre Kirkpatrick to Five-Year Deal

The Bengals have re-signed starting cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick.

The deal to bring Kirkpatrick back is a five-year deal worth close to $52.5 million, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The No. 17 pick in the 2012 draft, Kirkpatrick has come into his own since assuming a starting role in 2015.

The 27-year-old tied his career high in interceptions with three and broke up 10 passes last year.

Kirkpatrick played 2016 under a fifth-year option exercised by the Bengals, which paid him slightly more than $7.5 million.
