This could impact Jessie Bates’ potential extension.

CINCINNATI — The Bengals are hoping to sign Jessie Bates to a contract extension this offseason. 

The 24-year-old had the best year of his young career in 2020, finishing with 109 tackles, three interceptions and 15 passes defensed. 

The Bengals view him as a key member of their young core. His price tag could be going up in the near future. 

The Seahawks are willing to make Jamal Adams the NFL’s highest-paid safety according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. 

“You’re probably looking at about $17 million per year, which would be a massive deal for one of the more fun players in the entire NFL on defense,” Rapoport said on Friday. 

If that extension gets done, then Bates could try to reset the market and top Adams’ deal. 

Will he go that route? Will the Bengals be willing to pay Bates $18 million or more per season? 

Those are questions that will likely be answered in the coming weeks. 

Cincinnati has a history of extending players right before the start of the regular season. Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap and Joe Mixon are three examples of players that signed extensions with Cincinnati during training camp in past years.
