The Cincinnati Bengals continue their search for a free agent linebacker to add depth to a LB corps that may have just four healthy bodies if Vontaze Burfict can’t go Monday night as he recovers from a lower-leg injury.
Thus far, they’ve worked-out former starting weakside backer Thomas Howard, former Minnesota Vikings special teamer Tyrone McKenzie, as well as former New York Giants starting WLB Michael Boley.
On Tuesday, the team also worked out a pair of Ohio products: UC’s Maalik Bomar and Ohio State’s Etienne Sabino.
Sabino, an undrafted rookie, suffered a broken fibula after playing eight games during his senior season. He notched 45 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, two quarterback sacks, an interception, and a forced fumble, but the injury led him to going undrafted during the 2013 NFL draft. Later, Sabino signed as a college free agent with the New York Giants, but was cut during the first roster cutdown to 75 players.
