The Cincinnati Bengals have locked up starting cornerback Leon Hall to a four-year, $39 million contract extension. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Hall's deal includes a $9 million signing bonus and a $5 million roster bonus next year.

The Bengals didn't hold onto cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who signed with the Houston Texans. So, keeping Hall was imperative.

Hall has started 57 games in a row at right cornerback and intercepted five passes last season, giving him 18 interceptions for his career to go with 85 pass deflections.
