Bengals sign draft choice DT Geno Atkins

compiled from staff, wire and Bengals news

The Cincinnati Bengals draft nine players in the 2010 NFL Draft. They now have three of the nine signed to contracts.

They agreed to terms Friday with fourth-round pick Geno Atkins. The defensive tackle signed a four-year deal worth $2.262 million as a base salary plus a signing bonus of $472,450.

Atkins, who was the University of Georgia’s defensive MVP in 2009, will be playing in a rotation that includes Domata Peka, Tank Johnson, Pat Sims, Orien Harris and Clinton McDonald.

Atkins is a quick and strong player, but the scouting reports say his play at Georgia was inconsistent.

As a sophomore in 2007, he had 7.5 sacks, starting 7 games.

In 2008 as a junior, he started all 13 games and had 5 sacks.

In 2009, as a senior, he had 3.5 sacks and started only 3 games. In the Independence Bowl win over Texas A&M, Atkins had three tackles, a sack and a blocked field goal to win defensive MVP honors.
