The Cincinnati Bengals announced the re-signing of long snapper Clark Harris and safety Jeromy Miles. Both are major contributors to the success of the Bengals special teams unit.

Harris was a restricted free agent, coming off his fourth NFL season. He came on board after the Bengals long-time long-snapper, Brad St. Louis, caught a case of the "yips" in 2009 and couldn't reliably snap the football for field goals and extra points. Since becoming the Bengals' long snapper, Harris has made 395 snaps on punts and placement kicks without a misfire.

Miles led the special teams unit in tackles last year with 15, earning the team's nomination for special teams player for the Pro Bowl. Additionally, Miles has been specifically mentioned this off season by head coach Marvin Lewis as a candidate for more playing time at safety, along with Robert Sands.
