Bengals, DT Geno Atkins Discussing Long Term Deal


Geno Atkins is an absolute beast at defensive tackle, and wants to be paid as such.

Atkins, who is the best 4-3 defensive tackle in football,  has one year and $1.42 million remaining on the rookie contract he signed with the Bengals in 2010.

After locking up Carlos Dunlap to a long term deal, the Bengals and Atkins would like to get a deal done sooner than later.

The two sides have been engaged in talks for weeks in an attempt to get a deal done.
