The Cincinnati Bengals aren’t done adding to the secondary after the 2023 NFL draft thanks to undrafted free agency.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Bengals will sign Tulane safety Larry Brooks III, who put up 212 tackles and nine interceptions over four seasons.
Brooks impressed scouts at the Gridiron Showcase, as noted by CBS Sports’ Emory Hunt:
Brooks was awesome during the week. You’d think he was an offensive player with the amount of passes that found their way into his hands. He’s excellent both in off-coverage as he is in tight man-to-man. He’s another player who got a lot of buzz from the scouts in attendance.
The Bengals have a logjam at safety now, but a knack for timely turnovers is something that will grab the attention of all decision-makers in Cincinnati quickly.
