The Bengals signed LB Manny Lawson to a one-year, $3 million deal, according to Pro Football Talk.

Lawson, PFW's 46th best free agent in this year's market, has started all 16 games each of the past two seasons for the 49ers. He had 6½ sacks in '09 and 2½ in '10 with an interception.

He joins former teammate CB Nate Clements, who also signed with Cincinnati. Lawson was the 22nd overall pick in the 2006 draft.
