Bengals re-sign DT Brandon Thompson

Brandon Thompson ( Brandon Thompson (

Defensive tackle Brandon Thompson is staying in stripes after briefly testing the free agent waters. 

The signing was confirmed through Thompson's agent, Element Sports Group. 

The deal is one-year with incentives attached to playing time, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting. 

Thompson tore his ACL the final week of the regular season and the incentive-laden deal is presumably about the uncertainty of how Thompson's knee will respond. 

The defensive tackle was drafted by the Bengals in the third-round of the 2012 draft.
