Fourth-round pick Volson is only unsigned draft pick

The Cincinnati Bengals signed another draft pick Monday, leaving just one more to be locked down to a contract.

Versatile defensive tackle Zach Carter, the team’s third-round pick out of the University of Florida, became the latest to sign.

The 6-foot-4, 287-pound athlete played in 46 games with 25 starts over his college career and finished with 107 total tackles, including 28½ tackles for loss with 17½ sacks, as well as two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

The Bengals signed four other picks last week, and offensive lineman Cordell Volson is the only one of the team’s 2022 draft picks still unsigned. Volson was the team’s fourth round pick out of North Dakota State.
