Jake Browning’s impressive performance in the 2023 NFL season has earned him a fresh contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals announced on Tuesday that their backup quarterback has inked a two-year deal, extending his tenure with the team through 2025. Specific details regarding the terms of the contract were not immediately disclosed.

Browning, who initially joined the league as an undrafted free agent in 2019, showcased his talents in the previous season, notably after starting quarterback Joe Burrow sustained a wrist injury in Week 11.

Browning admirably stepped into the starting role for the final seven games, concluding the season with impressive statistics: a completion rate of 70.3%, 1,936 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions.

Formerly recognized for his standout performances at the University of Washington, Browning had been part of the Bengals’ practice squad since 2021.

His ascension to the backup role over Trevor Siemian ahead of the 2023 season proved pivotal, as he adeptly guided Cincinnati’s offense in the wake of Burrow’s injury, maintaining their playoff aspirations until a crucial Week 17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs dashed their hopes.

In addition to Browning’s contract extension, Cincinnati bolstered its quarterback corps by securing Logan Woodside on a one-year deal.

Woodside, who spent the past two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons and previously played for the Tennessee Titans from 2020 to 2021, returns for his second stint with the Bengals.

Originally drafted by Cincinnati in the seventh round of the 2018 draft, Woodside was waived before the season commenced.

Both Browning and Woodside currently occupy backup roles behind Burrow on the Bengals’ depth chart.

As the team prepares for this week’s draft, Bengals director of college scouting Mike Potts emphasized that any potential quarterback selections would likely occur in the later rounds.

“We’re fortunate to not be in that market, at least high in the draft,” Potts remarked.
