Cowboys lose free agent CB Awuzie to Bengals

On Tuesday, free agent cornerback Chidobe Awuzie agreed to a 3-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals after spending his first four seasons as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Awuzie’s contract is worth $21.75 million with $7.5 million guaranteed.

Ideally, Cincinnati is looking to pair Awuzie with Trae Waynes, who is coming off a pectoral injury that forced him to sit out his entire first season with the Bengals. Awuzie missed eight total games last season, which was a contract year for him with the Cowboys, and picked off one pass to go with five pass deflections and 38 tackles in games he played.

Awuzie, the Cowboys’ 25-year-old second-round pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, recorded at least one interception in each of his four seasons in Dallas across 42 starts.

The Awuzie deal was first reported by the NFL Network and confirmed by ESPN sources. For more sports coverage, click here.
