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.
