Sidney Jones contract details with Bengals emerge
When looking at the contract the Cincinnati Bengals gave tight end Irv Smith Jr., it was apparent the team got a great value deal with high upside and little risk.
Turns out it is the same story for cornerback Sidney Jones.
According to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 in Houston, Jones’ one-year deal is worth $1.08 million, which means the cap hit actually checks in at less than $1 million.
So for the Bengals, that’s two players at minimum salaries who could end up starting. Smith could be tight end No. 1 next season and Jones could easily start at corner across from Cam Taylor-Britt on the boundary if Chidobe Awuzie hasn’t completed his rehab.
Not bad value by any means for a Bengals team with needs to fill but a cap tightrope to navigate over the next few years.
