Bengals sign Dunlap to 6-year, $40M contract extension

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Carlos Dunlap has agreed to a six-year, $40 million contract extension with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The fourth year defensive end had 20 sacks his first three years in the NFL.

The deal came Monday, the same day the Bengals can no longer negotiate a multi-year contract with their other high profile defensive end. 

Michael Johnson will play this coming season under the franchise tag, but the team can likely only afford to pay one of their defensive ends big money with the contracts of Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and Geno Atkins up in the next couple of years.

Training camp starts at Paul Brown Stadium next Thursday.
