Cincinnati Bengals Re-Sign Safety

The Cincinnati Bengals have re-signed safety Michael Thomas to an undisclosed one-year contract extension, which will see him stay with the team for a third consecutive season.

Thomas has spent the past two seasons with the Bengals primarily as a special-teams contributor, recording 14 solo tackles and one pass defended in 24 games and has not been a significant part of the defense. 

Throughout his 10-year career, Thomas has recorded 343 total tackles, 11 tackles for loss, four QB hits, three interceptions, 16 passes defended, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and two sacks in 121 games with four different teams.

At 32 years old, Thomas will serve in his 11th NFL campaign and will continue to contribute as a special teams player while providing added depth in the secondary for the Bengals in the upcoming season. 

However, with the Bengals currently rostering Dax Hill, Tycen Anderson, Michael Thomas, and Brandon Wilson at safety, expect the team to make a move to upgrade in that area.
