Bengals sign WR Malone, making it 8 of 11 picks inked
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Bengals on Wednesday announced they have signed wide receiver Josh Malone, who was one of the team's fourth-round selections out of the University of Tennessee.
The 6-foot-3, 208-pound Malone totaled 104 receptions for 1,608 yards and 14 TDs in three seasons with the Volunteers. In 2016, he caught 50 passes for 972 yards (10th most in school history) and 11 TDs (third most in school history), and his 19.4 yards per reception set a new UT single-season record (minimum 50 catches). Malone was the second of three Bengals fourth-round draft picks.
Three Bengals draftees still are unsigned: HB Joe Mixon (second round; Oklahoma), DE Jordan Willis (third round; Kansas State) and C/G J.J. Dielman (fifth round; Utah).
