CINCINNATI (AP) - Linebacker Emmanuel Lamur signed the Cincinnati Bengals’ one-year tender offer for $2,356,000 on Wednesday, solidifying their depth at the position.

The fourth-year player appeared in 14 games last season, when starters Rey Maualuga and Vontaze Burfict missed significant time because of injuries. He finished third on the team in tackles and had two interceptions. Lamur was a restricted free agent.

The linebacker position was one of Cincinnati’s biggest concerns heading into the offseason. Burfict missed most of last season and is recovering from his second knee operation. Maualuga could have become an unrestricted free agent, but agreed to a three-year deal. Linebacker A.J. Hawk signed a two-year deal as a free agent from Green Bay.
