The Cincinnati Bengals have shipped defensive tackle Orien Harris to St. Louis in exchange for running back Brian Leonard, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Leonard started in seven games as a rookie in 2007 and finished with 303 yards on 86 carries. His best game came on Oct. 7, 2007, against Arizona when he had 102 yards on 18 carries. He was limited by injuries last year, playing in only two games with seven yards on two carries.
Harris was acquired on waivers before the start of the season last year and saw action in 14 games with 24 tackles.
Leonard, who has a history of shoulder problems, played fullback for the Rams last season.
My guess: the Bengals just traded one guy who wasn’t going to make the final roster for another guy who isn’t going to make the final roster. But competition is good and all that…
