The Geoffrey Pope experience is no more. Pope, in his second year with 12 career games under his belt, was signed to the Philadelphia Eagles' 53-man roster, writes Jason at Bleeding Green Nation. Pope, typically a third or fourth cornerback when the secondary sustained injuries, is the second Bengals player taken off the practice squad in the past month. Chris Pressley was pulled from the Bengals practice squad onto Tampa Bay's 53-man roster at the end of October. Pressley made his first NFL start last week against the New Orleans Saints.
That's right. Other teams are going to the Bengals practice squad to fill out their own rosters.
In other roster moves news by the Bengals with a Groundhog Day feel: Bengals waived Scott Kooistra and signed Orien Harris. I swear I've written that before. Bengals.com also announces that the team signed former Ohio State cornerback Antonio Smith to the team's practice squad.
