March 16 (UPI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a contract with free agent defensive end Trey Hendrickson.
Sources told ESPN, NFL Network and the Cincinnati Enquirer on Monday that Hendrickson agreed to a four-year, $60 million pact with the AFC North franchise. The Bengals can't make the signing official until the start of free agency at 4 p.m. EDT Wednesday.
Hendrickson, 26, had a career-high 13.5 sacks, 25 tackles, 25 quarterback hits, 12 tackles for a loss, a pass defensed and a forced fumble in 15 starts last season for the New Orleans Saints.
The 6-foot-4, 270-pound pass rusher had 4.5 sacks in 13 games in 2019.
Hendrickson entered the league as a third-round pick by the Saints in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Florida Atlantic product was not a starter for his first two NFL seasons.
