The Bengals today reached a contract agreement with free agent HB Jacques Patrick on a three-year deal through the 2022 season.

Patrick (6-3, 236) will be classified as a rookie in 2020, as he was draft-eligible in '19 but has not previously signed an NFL contract. Earlier this year, he was a member of the XFL's Tampa Bay Vipers, and rushed 60 times for 254 yards (4.2) and two TDs. He spent 2015-18 at Florida State University, where he appeared in 45 games (13 starts) and rushed 366 times for 1790 yards (4.9) and 17 TDs.
