Two relatively unknown Bengals making a push for a roster spot
These two relatively unknown members of the Cincinnati Bengals are performing well enough in training camp so far to make a push for a roster spot.
Every year fans and analysts alike enter the season with their own projection of a particular team’s 53-man roster and depth chart. However, surprise cuts, injuries, and other unforeseen circumstances never seem to fail to muddy the water. The Cincinnati Bengals are no exception to that rule this year.
For starters, a couple of key depth pieces have already been waived due to failed physicals. First, it was solid defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow. Then, it was promising running back Rodney Anderson. Their departures opened the door for some under-the-radar players to sneak onto the roster.
You can’t forget about injuries and absences either. A.J. Green, John Ross, Tee Higgins, and Shawn Williams have all missed time, which has allowed lesser-known players to soak up their snaps.
As Zac Taylor and Co. attempt to lay the foundation for the new era of Bengals football, some relatively unknown guys have begun to step up. From consistently performing well in practice to making splash plays in a scrimmage, these two players that initially seemed out of the fray are now making a push for a roster spot.
