Jeff Rowe is signed off the Bengals practice squad by the Seattle Seahawks

Remember 2007, when the Bengals kept defensive tackle Matt Toeaina on the team's practice squad and was eventually signed away to the Chicago Bears? In his first game with the Bears, at the Minnesota Vikings, Toeaina made two tackles during a Monday Night football broadcast and had this Bengals blogger pulling his hair out, likely over-reacting, "we let him go?" Toeaina even returned an interception for an 81-yard touchdown in a preseason game against the Detroit Lions. We let him go? In the end, Toeaina had six total tackles to close out 2007 and got his first action against New Orleans on Thursday Night Football.

This year's version of Toeaina is Jeff Rowe, signed Friday afternoon off the Bengals practice squad by the Seattle Seahawks. As of this posting, Rotoworld is the only one reporting this. Rowe was always considered a developmental backup, never reaching "backup" status with guys like Anthony Wright and Ryan Fitzpatrick ahead of him. The Bengals eventually dropped him, and signed to the practice squad once he cleared waivers to start the season.

UPDATE: Hobson originally mentioned it during my "scanning" sessions this afternoon.
