The Bengals today re-signed S Brandon Wilson to a one-year contract.

Wilson, who will be a third-year player in 2019, joined the Bengals as a sixth-round draft pick in 2017 and has played in 24 games over his first two seasons. Considered a core special teams contributor for the Bengals, he ranked second in ST tackles last season (nine) and tied for fourth in 2017 (five).

Wilson, whose previous contract was due to expire this Wednesday, had been issued an exclusive rights tender by the Bengals on Friday.
