The former Kansas City Chief was one of the best available offensive tackles in free agency, according to ESPN.

Over the first two years, the deal pays $42.3 million and includes a $31 million signing bonus. It is $10 million more than the signing bonuses the Bengals gave to offensive linemen Ted Karras, Alex Cappa, and La’el Collins together last offseason.

In 2021, the Chiefs acquired Brown in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens where he was the starting left tackle for the majority of his two seasons with the Kansas team.

Brown has appeared in 81 games in his five NFL seasons and has been selected for the Pro Bowl for the past four seasons.
