CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals signed offensive tackle Jake Fisher of Oregon on Wednesday, leaving only two draft picks without contracts.

Fisher was the Bengals’ second-round pick. He’s expected to fill a backup role on the line this season and could move into a bigger role next year. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right tackle Andre Smith are in the final years of their contracts.

The Bengals also took an offensive tackle with their first-round pick, Cedric Ogbuehi of Texas A&M. He’s recovering from reconstructive knee surgery and won’t be ready for the start of training camp.

Ogbuehi and tight end Tyler Kroft — a third-rounder from Rutgers — are the only Bengals draft picks left without deals. Seven others have signed.
