The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Wednesday that offensive lineman Alex Redmond has signed a contract for the 2020 season.

Redmond was a restricted free agent who received an original-round tender which will pay him $2.13million in 2020.

Initially signed by Cincinnati as an undrafted free agent in 2016, Redmond started 15 games at right guard in 2018 and helped team-mate Joe Mixon lead the AFC with 1,168 rushing yards that season.

The UCLA product appeared in three games with two starts last season before going on injured reserve due to a torn biceps.

Redmond is one of four candidates for the Bengals’ two starting guard spots, along with free-agent addition Xavier Sua-Filo, 2018 first-round pick Billy Price and second-year pro Michael Jordan.

John Miller, a 13-game starter at right guard last season, signed with the Carolina Panthers in March.
