The Bengals and Sam Hubbard have agreed to a four-year, $40 million contract, according to a source.

A source told The Athletic on Sunday that the Cincinnati Bengals and defensive end Sam Hubbard have reached an agreement on a four-year, $40 million contract extension.
The news was initially reported by ESPN.
Hubbard, who was 26 years old at the time, was about to enter the final year of his rookie deal.
He was a third-round choice out of Ohio State in 2018, and in three NFL seasons, he has started 28 of 44 games.
Hubbard got two sacks, 11 quarterback hits, and three pass breakups in 13 games last season, after averaging 14.5 sacks, 22 quarterback hits, and five pass breakups in his previous two seasons.
This story will be updated when more information becomes available.

According to sources, Fred Warner and the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to a five-year, $95 million contract extension.

Sources tell ESPN’s Adam Schefter that All-Pro linebacker Frank Warner and the 49ers agreed on a five-year, $95 million agreement on Wednesday that will keep him in San Francisco until 2026.
According to Schefter, Warner, who was entering the final year of his current contract, will receive a guaranteed $40.5 million as part of the agreement.
According to ESPN Stats & Information, the $40.5 million guaranteed is the second-highest guaranteed amount for a non-edge-rushing linebacker in the NFL, behind C.J. Spiller.
The New York Jets have guaranteed Mosley $51 million.
Warner, a former third-round draft pick who was invited to the Pro Bowl for the first time last season after recording 125 tackles and two interceptions, declared earlier this offseason that he wants to be a “Niner for life.”
Warner has 366 tackles since 2018, and is one of only two players in the NFL with at least 250 solo tackles (252) and at least 15 pass breakups (16) in the last three years, alongside Seattle’s Bobby Wagner.

The 49ers and All-Pro LB Fred Warner have agreed to a five-year, $95 million contract deal.

The 49ers and All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner have agreed to a five-year, $95 million contract extension (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter).
The new contract will keep him in the league through 2026, making him the highest-paid inside linebacker in league history.
Warner, a former BYU third-round pick, was due to enter the free agent pool next spring.
The Niners wouldn’t let him go without a new contract, giving him a huge raise to overtake Bobby Wagner as the league’s highest-paid ILB.
At least, that’s the title he now holds; Darius Leonard of the Indianapolis Colts could dethrone him in the coming weeks.
When questioned about a new deal for Warner in May, head coach Kyle Shanahan responded, “I want to get it done personally.”
“I feel like I’d say the same thing about him as I did about [George] Kittle [last year] when we were talking about it.”
I just think it’ll be a matter of time.
“I understand he isn’t in his free agency year or anything like that, so it isn’t always on my mind.”
But Fred is a guy who I intend to keep around for the rest of my life and who has earned it.
Wagner has a flawless attendance record as a pro, having played 95% of the team’s snaps over the last three seasons.
In 2020, he was named First-Team All-Pro after recording 125 tackles and earning the No. 1 overall grade from Pro Football Focus.
By far the best off-ball linebacker
Warner has always stated that he wants to be a “Niner for life,” and he now has a contract that will cover the majority of his NFL career.
