Free Agency 2016

Bengals Re-Sign Safety George Iloka To 5-Year Deal


One of the hottest free agent names at safety is now off the market as the Cincinnati Bengals retained their former fifth-round pick, George Iloka.

The 6-foot-4, 225 pound safety reportedly signed a five-year, $30 million deal to stay with the AFC North champion Bengals.

Cincinnati keeps an important member of their secondary in tact while the market rises for fellow free agent Eric Weddle.  With so many teams needing help at the position and a very poor draft class at the position, Weddle’s market could be expanding even further.
