Bengals re-sign LB Blackstock, DT Harris

CINCINNATI -- Linebacker Darryl Blackstock has agreed to stay with the Cincinnati Bengals, who have taken two hits to their offense in the first days of free agency.

Blackstock, an unrestricted free agent, agreed to terms Monday. He started four games last season and appeared in eight others, recording 17 tackles. The NFL gave Blackstock a four-game suspension for using a performance-enhancing substance.

The Bengals also re-signed defensive lineman Orien Harris, a second-year pro who appeared in 14 games last season.

Terms of the deals with Blackstock and Harris weren't disclosed.

Cincinnati has lost right tackle Stacy Andrews, who signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, and second-string quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who went to the Buffalo Bills.
