Bengals sign first-round draft choice from Ohio State

The Cincinnati Bengals signed first-round draft pick Billy Price on Monday.

A center, Price was selected in the first round and 21st overall out of Ohio State University. The Bengals agreed to a four-year contract with an option to extend one year through 2022.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder was a four-year starter for the Buckeyes. He was a guard for three seasons, when switched to center as a senior.

A two-time Buckeyes captain, he earned multiple awards and was a two-time All-American. He set an all-time OSU record with 55 total and consecutive starts.

The Bengals have signed all but two of their 11 draft choices, defensive end Sam Hubbard also of OSU (third round) and linebacker Malik Jefferson of Texas (third round).
