D.J. Reader, Bengals agree on 4-year, $53M deal
from Grant Gordon, with the NFL.com:

Already boasting stellar talent along the defensive line, the Bengals are bolstering their front line of defense.

Nose tackle D.J. Reader is expected to sign with the Bengals on a four-year, $53 million contract, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

The Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson first reported the signing.

Reader, the NFL.com 101 No. 15 free agent, is a force against the rush, having clogged opposing run games for the Texans for the last four seasons. In 2019, Reader had career-highs of 52 tackles — and 2.5 sacks — in 15 starts for the playoff-bound Texans.

While he leaves a hole to fill in the Houston D-line, he adds to an already formidable front in Cincy that includes Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap and Sam Hubbard.
