The Cincinnati Bengals and free agent cornerback Chidobe Awuzie have agreed on a three-year deal, multiple outlets reported Tuesday.

Financial terms were not reported.

It’s the second big splash on defense in as many days for the Bengals, who reportedly came to terms with pass rushing specialist Trey Hendrickson on Monday night.

Awuzie, 25, spent the past four seasons in Dallas, playing in 49 games (42 starts) for the Cowboys, who selected him in the second round of the 2017 draft out of Colorado. A hamstring injury and time on reserve/COVID-19 limited Awuzie to eight games (six starts) last season.

Awuzie has four career interceptions, 37 passes defensed and 213 tackles.
