    CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Bengals re-signed LB Preston Brown to a three-year contract worth a reported $21 million through the 2021 season. Brown, a sixth-year player in 2019, had been due to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

    Brown joined the Bengals last offseason as an unrestricted free agent, after spending his first four seasons (2014-17) with the Buffalo Bills. In his first year in Cincinnati, he served as the team’s No. 1 MLB and recorded 42 tackles and two INTs, despite being limited by ankle and knee injuries to just seven games (all starts). Prior to joining the Bengals, he had played in all 64 possible regular-season games (62 starts) since entering the NFL in 2014. He originally was the Bills’ third-round draft pick (73rd overall) out of Louisville in the 2014 draft.

    Brown, who will turn 27 in October, is a Cincinnati native and graduate of Northwest High School.
