VA coach and son of former Virginia football coach Terry Pagula has agreed to a four-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, the NFL announced.
Former NFL defensive end Terrance Plummer was the highest-profile veteran to sign with the Bengals, joining a defense that includes Pro Bowl defensive end Joey Bosa, starting corner A.J. Bouye, wide receiver Adam Humphries and safety Chris Conte.
The Bengals also signed defensive tackle Jordan Hicks, linebacker Jarrad Davis and linebacker Benardrick McKinney.
Plummer, who is entering his 13th season in the NFL, has made four Pro Bowls with the Seahawks and Seahawks, including three in 2014.
The Bengals have been among the teams to pursue Plummer since he announced in May he would be leaving the NFL.
The team is expected to make a final decision by the end in August.
The veteran had been scheduled to have a contract extension with the team through the 2020 season, but a contract dispute with the Ravens and subsequent trade talks led to a six-year extension being signed in August 2018.
The contract extension included $14 million in guaranteed money, $10 million in signing bonus and a $6 million buyout.
The deal includes a $2 million workout bonus.
Plummer said in a statement released on Sunday he was “delighted” to sign a new contract with the NFL after “many years of hard work.”
“I am so grateful for the opportunities I’ve had as a member of the Washington Redskins, the best fans in the nation and the best players in the league,” he said.
“I am proud to be able to call myself a Washingtonian and continue to build the team I love.
I want to thank all the fans, coaches, players and employees at the Redskins for the support and passion they’ve shown me over the years.”
