CLEVELAND — Veteran defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi and the Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms on a deal, according to an ESPN report.

A third-round pick of the Browns in the 2017 draft, Ogunjobi ranked 55th last season with a run block win of 29.5%. In 60 games over a span of four seasons, he has 180 tackles, 14.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

A fan favorite, Ogunjobi released a heartfelt statement on Twitter thanking fans, the organization and the City of Cleveland.

“Just want to thank God first and foremost for an amazing journey over these last 4 years. To see and be apart of this teams turnaround will always hold a special place in my heart. Want to thank my teammates, fans, the entire city of Cleveland, and the Browns organization.”

In 2020, Ogunjobi was named the PFWA Dino Lucarelli “Good Guy Award” winner.

The award is given annually to a player for his cooperation with the media and the way he carries himself within the community and with his teammates. During the pandemic, he donated 100,000 meals to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
