CINCINNATI — The Bengals solidified their linebacker position by reaching agreement on a deal with A.J. Hawk and tendering an offer to Emmanuel Lamur on Tuesday.
They also offered a one-year deal to defensive tackle Devon Still, whose daughter is fighting cancer. Still will have to decide whether to stay in Cincinnati while his 4-year-old daughter, Leah, is treated on the East Coast.
Hawk, who grew up in Ohio and attended Ohio State, worked out with the Bengals as free agency opened on Tuesday. Agent Mike McCartney tweeted that they had agreed to a two-year deal. The team didn't confirm it.
Lamur moved into a starter's role last season, when linebackers Vontaze Burfict and Rey Maualuga missed significant time with injuries.
