Bengals tender Lamur, Lewis-Harris; offer Still a deal

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals made tender offers to linebacker Emmanuel Lamur and cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris, whose contracts expired on Tuesday.

They also offered a one-year deal to defensive tackle Devon Still, whose daughter is fighting cancer. Still will have to decide whether to stay in Cincinnati while his 4-year-old daughter, Leah, is treated on the East Coast.

Lamur is a restricted free agent who can negotiate with other teams, but the Bengals can match any offer. Lamur moved into a starter’s role last season, when linebackers Vontaze Burfict and Rey Maualuga missed significant time with injuries.

By tendering Lewis-Harris, the Bengals retained their rights to the third-year player. He played in 10 games over the last two seasons, mostly on special teams.
