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

Wilson, a fourth-year player in 2020, originally was a Bengals sixth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He has played in 36 career games (two starts), and last season he led the NFL with 31.3-yard kickoff return average on 20 returns, including a 92-yarder for a touchdown in Game 6 at Baltimore. He also recorded 18 tackles and two passes defensed on defense in 2019, as well as six tackles on special teams.

Wilson signed the restricted free agent tender the Bengals extended to him on March 16.
