CINCINNATI, March 9 (UPI) -- Despite having his hand in the Cincinnati Bengals' postseason unraveling last season, cornerback Adam Jones is staying in the Queen City.

Jones, 32, had one of his best seasons last year in Cincinnati. He signed a three-year deal Wednesday, according to Fox Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo.

Several reports had the Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens, and Cleveland Browns as teams that reached out to Jones leading up to the free agency period.

Jones was the No. 6 pick overall in the 2005 NFL Draft. After two seasons with the Tennessee Titans, Jones was suspended for the 2007 season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He played one season for the Dallas Cowboys, before signing with the Bengals in 2010.

Jones has 14 interceptions, 11 fumble recoveries, and 353 tackles in 114 career games. He also has five career punt returns for a touchdown.
