Bengals keep Crocker, Dorsey

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

The Cincinnati Bengals made their first signings of free agency in house Friday as they signed safety Chris Crocker and running back DeDe Dorsey. The team did not specify the length of either deal.

Crocker joined the Bengals last season and helped a defense that was scrappy and finished No. 12 in the NFL. He had 48 tackles and one interception.

"For the whole second half of the season, he was a leader in the locker room as well as on the field," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement.

Dorsey played in four games last season before suffering a season-ending hamstring injury.
