Cincinnati Bengals receivers – No. 3: Trenton Irwin

Trenton Irwin joined the Bengals in 2019 after going undrafted out of Georgia. He hasn’t done much for the team through his two years on the roster, totaling just one catch for five yards through two games.

Irwin was definitely someone who needed to have a decent training camp if he wanted to remain on the roster and he’s certainly made a nice case to be with the team after the final set of roster cuts.

Dan Hoard spoke highly of Irwin last weekend, noting that he’s “made several catches a day so far”. In the tweet, Hoard quoted offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, who said, “I don’t think he’s in any way, shape, or form out of the mix to make our team.”

It wouldn’t be crazy to see Irwin make the team this year and fill the role of a WR5/6. He won’t be a game-changer by any means but there’s definitely a chance that Irwin carves out a role for himself in 2021.
