The Cincinnati Bengals have officially added their rookie quarterback.
Former North Carolina State signal-caller Ryan Finley signed his contract with the team on Thursday, the ninth of 10 selections in last month’s NFL Draft to put pen to paper.
Only linebacker Germaine Pratt (third round, North Carolina State) remains unsigned.
The Bengals moved up in the fourth round to take Finley with the No. 104 overall pick. He left N.C. State with the top career completion percentage (.645) in school history after starting three seasons following a transfer from Boise State. His 18 career 300-yard passing games and 10,505 passing yards both rank second in school history and third in Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) history.
Previously the Bengals signed eight picks: offensive tackle Jonah Williams (first round, Alabama); tight end Drew Sample (second round, Washington); linebacker Deshaun Davis (sixth round, Auburn); defensive tackle Renell Wren (fourth round, Arizona State); offensive lineman Michael Jordan (fourth round, Ohio State); running backs Trayveon Williams (sixth round, Texas A&M) and Rodney Anderson (sixth round, Oklahoma); and cornerback Jordan Brown (seventh round, South Dakota State).
