The season is over and now NFL rosters can be expanded from 53 to 90 players. The Bengals have signed TE/LS Bryce Davis, DE DeQuin Evans, WR Justin Hilton, T Dan Knapp, QB Zac Robinson, LB JK Schaffer to future contracts. All of them finished the season on the Bengals’ practice squad. Expect to hear news of a few more signings over the next few weeks, as well as the release of safety Robert Sands, who was recently arrested for domestic violence after finishing the year on the injured reserve list. The Bengals keep their roster full throughout the year, and have done well finding gems like Andrew Hawkins lately from doing such.
In addition to them, the Bengals signed WR Lavasier Tuinei to a reserve/future contract last week.
And to update the reports of head-coaching interviews for offensive coordinator Jay Gruden , the Philadelphia Eagles have been granted permission to talk to Gruden. He’s already scheduled to interview with the Arizona Cardinals at some point this week, and it’s looking more likely that he may leave, and the Bengals will be able to retain Mike Zimmer, which is what everyone wants anyway.
