After the contract of defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi was voided yesterday, the Cincinnati Bengals were once again left with a vacant roster spot after Geno Atkins was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list. The team needed to sign a defensive lineman, if for nothing else than to add an extra body in the event Domata Peko or Brandon Thomplson goes down.

They appear to have found their man in Kheeston Randall:

Randall, who was drafted in the 7th round of the 2012 NFL draft, spent the past two seasons with the Miami Dolphins. In his rookie season, Kheeston played 148 snaps for the Dolphins but found playing time hard to come by with Paul Soliai and Randy Starks eating up the majority of the snaps.

He registered two QB Hurries and six tackles, two of which were stops (tackle that constitutes an offensive failure) and finished with a -3.3 grade by Pro Football Focus.
