CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals have signed running back Giovani Bernard of North Carolina, leaving only one of their 10 draft picks without a deal.

Bernard was the second of their two picks in the second round. He'll get a chance to win a spot as a change-of-pace back, complementing BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Earlier in the week, the Bengals signed defensive end Margus Hunt of Southern Methodist, their other second-round pick. The only draft choice still without a contract is tight end Tyler Eifert, taken 21st overall in the first round. They're hoping that Eifert can learn the offense quickly enough to give Cincinnati another pass-catching option in formations using two tight ends.
