Bengals sign TE Richard Quinn, put Kyle Cook on Injured Reserve


The Bengals have announced the signing of third-year tight-end Richard Qinn to the roster. He was a 2nd-round pick of the Denver Broncos in the 2009 NFL Draft.  The 6-4, 264-pound Quinn is primarily a blocking specialist, and won’t provide much of a threat as a pass-catcher. He has one reception for nine yards in his 30 career NFL games. Quinn was waived by the Broncos in prior to the start of the 2011 season, and after clearing waivers, was placed on injured reserve. He was released with an injury settlement on August 26.

He was later signed by the Redskins, but was released for final cuts before the start of the 2012 season.

Here’s what Rotoworld had on Quinn:

"A second-round bust by the 2009 Josh McDaniels Broncos, Quinn is purely a blocking specialist. His signing suggests the Bengals may have doubts about Jermaine Gresham‘s availability for the season opener."

The move was made after the team designated center Kyle Cook to the injured reserve list, but with the new IR rules, and does not mean his season is over. Cook is eligible to practice Week 7 vs. Pittsburgh, and will be eligible to play Week 9 vs. Denver.

The team also announced they have released TE/long-snapper Bryce Davis from the practice squad.
