Bengals Agree to Terms With 1st Round TE Jermaine Gresham

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms with first-round tight end Jermaine Gresham.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Gresham caught 111 passes for 1,629 yards and 26 touchdowns during a 42-game career that was cut short by a season-ending knee injury before his senior season even started.

The 6-5, 261-pounder was coming off a first-team Big 12, and second-team All-American junior season where Gresham caught 66 passes for 950 yards and 14 touchdowns. Gresham was a finalist for the Mackey Award that season.

During pre-draft workouts, Gresham showed that he still had the speed and athleticism to stretch the field, and entered the 2010 NFL Draft as the top tight end available. The Bengals, whose tight ends were decimated by injuries in 2009, used the 21st overall pick on Gresham, who is expected to start immediately.
