Bengals re-sign Germaine Pratt to 3-year deal

The Cincinnati Bengals and Germaine Pratt have agreed to an extension.

Pratt spent nearly three hours on the market of the legal tampering window before agreeing to a three-year deal worthy $21 million, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

A third-round pick by the Bengals in 2019 out of NC State, Pratt drummed up 355 total tackles, one forced fumble, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions — including that playoff-drought ending one — over four seasons.

A reunion with Pratt seemed unlikely for a Bengals team attempting to shift more money to the offense. He just had the best season of his career, too, improving in coverage and playing a career-high 76 percent of the snaps. His desire to play more third-downs was well-known.

Instead, Pratt and the Bengals do a nice deal for both parties and keep defensive continuity going.
