The Cincinnati Bengals are about to open this weekend’s rookie minicamp, and there will be several players attending on a tryout basis, the most notable of which being former Pittsburgh Steelers fullback and Wisconsin Badger John Clay:
Full #Bengals rookie minicamp roster released. Most intriguing tryout guy is former Wisconsin RB John Clay.

#bengals have added one other local player to tryout list — LB Dwayne Woods, who went to Princeton High and later Bowling Green

Clay will be very interesting to watch this weekend, as the fullback position already has Chris Pressley and John Conner on the roster, but Chris is coming off of a serious knee injury, and Conner wasn’t very effective last year. Perhaps Clay can earn a roster spot and take over there.
We shall see.
