Cincinnati (AP) — The Bengals have reached deals with two more of their unrestricted free agents, cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones and receiver Brandon Tate.

That makes five free agents on defense and six on offense or special teams that have decided to stay with Cincinnati. The Bengals' only notable signing from outside the team has been backup quarterback Josh Johnson, who will compete for the job that opened when Bruce Gradkowski signed with Pittsburgh as a free agent.

Jones played in every game during the Bengals' playoff season last year, starting five. He also returned punts and had an 81-yard touchdown return.

Tate caught 13 passes for 211 yards and a touchdown. He also returned 32 kickoffs for an average of 24.8 yards, and had 21 punt returns for 8.9 yards.
