The Cincinnati Bengals and starting FB Chris Pressley have agreed to a two-year extension, his agent, Blake Baratz, confirmed.

“Chris is one of the best people in the National Football League, and everything that he gets is well deserved. It's people like Chris that remind me that everything I do is worth it,” Baratz told

Pressley, who was signed by the Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2009, was scheduled to become a restricted free agent on Mar. 13.

After spending time on the Bengals practice squad as a rookie, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wound up signing him to their active roster during the 2009 season. Pressley started three games for the team before being waived in October of 2010. Pressley was signed to the Bengals practice squad again later that season and stayed there until the team signed him in December to the active roster to close the season.

Pressley, 25, won the starting fullback job coming out of training camp last season and started 10 out of the 15 games that he appeared in.
