Bengals 2022 UDFAs: Who will stay and who will go?
The Cincinnati Bengals agreed to terms with 16 undrafted free agents, or UDFAs. These players went undrafted and then signed somewhere after the draft had concluded.
While it’s certainly an uphill battle for a UDFA to make the final roster, it’s possible. Trey Hopkins is a recent example of a Bengals UDFA who was able to make a name for himself on the roster and while he’s no longer with the team, he went from going undrafted to starting at center for several years.
What will the fate of the 16 UDFAs on the roster be? Let’s go through each one and discuss if they’ll make the team in the form of the roster or practice squad or if they’ll be released altogether.

Cal Adomitis, LS (Pittsburgh)
Long snappers have feelings too, ya know and out of all of the UDFAs who joined the Bengals, Cal Adomitis might have the best chance of sticking in the league long-term. He might not end up being the long snapper of the Cincinnati Bengals, however, as Clark Harris is returning for another season.
If Adomitis has a decent showing this summer, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least bit if he’s plucked off the Bengals’ practice squad down the road but we’re not diving that far into detail here.
Prediction: Practice squad
