Will Clarke signs rookie contract with the Cincinnati Bengals

Things that make up a great first day on a new job: meeting your work mates, getting equipment and a clean new uniform, touring the facility and signing a multi-million dollar contract.

That is how it went for Bengals rookie DE Will Clarke.

The team announced this morning that they signed Clarke to his rookie tender. His four-year contract included a signing bonus of $545,380 and is worth around $2,892,994 all told.

The Bengals are looking for a replacement at defensive end with the departure of Michael Johnson via free-agency. His competitors for the position are Robert Geathers, Wallace Gilbury and Margus Hunt.

Clarke’s size and potential are why the Bengals selected him in the third round, and you can expect that he will get a long look this summer and into the preseason as the team looks to solidify their starting unit.
