Mason Schreck

When the Bengals cut Ryan Hewitt and moved Cethan Carter to IR, it became clear they were going to keep Mason Schreck. Schreck had a great preseason, primarily as a receiving threat. Though that is a nice skill to have, that still places him squarely in fourth on the depth chart at tight end. He doesn’t have the same blocking capability that Hewitt had at the H-back.

There is very little chance the team adds another H-back, since they used Hewitt so little last year. However, they could get away with keeping only three tight ends if they want to add depth at corner or safety without cutting any of their current secondary players. Schreck would likely be an inactive this season, so he may not have much value to the team anyway.
