The Bengals have brought in 2 young talents for preseason. Calvin Russell a WR journeyman who’s played at the UFL and AFL level. And LeRoy Vann a college return man who couldn’t catch on at the NFL level. They will be wearing #’s 86 & 31 respectively.
Calvin Russell is another UFL Jay Gruden Receiver having a chance in the NFL. To those who may think Russell sounds familiar he played in the AFL’s Columbus Destroyers in 2008.
LeRoy Vann was an elite NCAA return specialist. His career high was 7 returns for TD’s in a season. He had a short lived career in the NFL being cut from the 49er’s last preseason, then tried out for the Lions where they elected to not sign him.
To see a little taste of what Vann brings to the table, here’s some of his college highlights.
