Scanning the Wire: Free Agent Fullbacks


Bengals sign former Jets FB John Conner


With starting fullback Chris Pressley out for the rest of the season, the Bengals have nine days before their next game in Pittsburgh to fine an adequate replacement. Here are the free agent fullbacks available right now:

Ahmard Hall

Ovie Mughelli

Lousaka Polite

*John Conner

Moran Norris

Owen Schmitt

Reagan Maui’a

Mike Karney

Brit Miller

*Jourdan Brooks

Shane Bannon

Fui Vakapuna

*Was invited for tryout recently


> Conner was released by the Jets via an injury settlement after a productive 2-year stint in New York. Conner had been reportedly dealing with an MCL sprain and hamstring injury, but is thought to be healthy now.

> Brooks was with the Bengals the entire preseason and was signed to the practice squad but was later released.

> There’s no guarantee the team will sign a FB. Last night, backup TE Orson Charles got snaps at FB, and third-string RB Brian Leonard was originally drafted to play FB out of Rutgers. Jay Gruden could also run more single-back and double-tight end formations.
