UPDATE: The Bengals announced Hall’s signing to an extension through 2015 later Friday. “I’ve always had faith in this team and these players, and it means a lot to me that the Bengals have faith in me as a person and a player,” Hall said in a statement released by the team. “Any team has to keep its core in place to be good in the long run, and with Whit (Andrew Whitworth) signing on, too, it’s good for the team and good for the locker room.”
Bengals DB Leon Hall has agreed to terms on a four-year, $39 million contract with the Bengals.
The four-year veteran will earn $20 million of it by March, according to a league source.
Hall has started all 16 games in each of the last three seasons for Cincinnati. He had 44 combined tackles and four interceptions in 2010.
The Bengals’ first-round draft pick in 2007 out of Michigan has 18 career interceptions.
