Bengals re-sign Kelly; sign CB Sears

Posted May 13, 2010

The Bengals on Thursday re-signed veteran tight end Reggie Kelly, who had become an unrestricted free agent on March 5. The team also signed cornerback Johnny Sears as a college free agent out of Eastern Michigan.

Kelly is a 12th-year NFL player in 2010. He joined the Bengals in 2003 as an unrestricted free agent from Atlanta. Kelly played in 90 games with 86 starts from 2003-08 with Cincinnati, but he suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in a training camp practice on Aug. 3 last year and was subsequently placed on the Reserve/Injured list, where he spent the entire 2009 season.

For his career, Kelly has played in 152 games with 133 starts and has caught 184 passes for 1718 yards and five touchdowns. He also has played in three postseason games with two starts.

Sears participated in the Bengals rookie minicamp two weeks ago as an unsigned tryout player. He played and started nine games for Eastern Michigan last season. He ranked seventh on the Eagles defense with 37 total tackles (23 solo), and he led the team with seven passes defensed. He also was the Eagles No. 1 kickoff returner with 33 returns for 755 yards (22.9-yard average; long of 53).

    With Jeremy Hill ripping off his longest run in 20 games during Sunday's 29-17 loss to the Broncos in the Paul Brown Stadium opener, the running game stirred. But Pro Bowl left tackle Andrew Whitworth says it has to become the norm: “I think this team is going to have to run it well. It’s just reality.”

    It’s not that the Bengals lost Sunday to Denver. After all, they are the defending Super Bowl champs. But four sack-and-strip touchdowns by Broncos All-World pass rusher Von Miller would have made more sense than what happened in a wild Paul Brown Stadium opener.
