Former Wisconsin offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler no longer has to worry about his first contract, so hes turned his attention to something to help get around Cincinnati. The Bengals announced Friday that they had signed Zeitler to a four-year contract. Now Zeitler, who was the 27th overall selection, is looking for his first car. "My younger brother owned one before me. I just never really needed one or thought about it," Zeitler told Bengals.com. "The parking in Madison is crazy and expensive. It's not worth it. When I went home I'd borrow my parents. Now I'll be able to get one and pay some bills." The Waukesha, Wis. native played in 43 games at Wisconsin, earning All-American honors from multiple publications following his senior season in 2011. Hes the first guard ever selected by the Bengals in the first round. Zeitler just completed his first week of voluntary work with the Bengals and is adjusting to life in the NFL on the fly. "The big thing is communication, so I'm trying to get used to the veterans," Zeitler told Bengals.com. "(Bengals center Kyle) Cook has been great, helping me with the calls. There's a lot to get used to and I'm looking forward to spending all summer trying to get it done."
