Riley Reiff, nine year NFL veteran, has signed a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Parkston, South Dakota, native was released earlier this month after spending four years with the Minnesota Vikings. He was drafted in 2012 by the Detroit Lions where he spent his first five NFL seasons.

Terms of the deal were not immediately released.

Reiff, an offensive lineman, has played both tackle positions and has started 127 of 135 games he's played in the NFL. He will be blocking next year for quarterback Joe Burrow, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

"Really impressed with [Burrow]," Reiff told the Bengals website. "He looks great on film and he's even better off the field. Just the way he conducts himself. Down to earth. Cincinnati type guy. Tough. Midwestern. Blue collar. Comes to work."
