Mike Mickens joins the Bengals offseason roster

The Cincinnati Bengals signed cornerback Mike Mickens to the team's offseason roster. Mickens signed on the Bengals practice squad in late November. After being drafted in the seventh round, the Cowboys cut him (and DeAngelo Smith) on final cutdown day. He made Dallas' practice squad before signing on with Tampa Bay's 53-man roster, where he was cut soon after.

From the Bengals PR:

The Bengals today signed CB Mike Mickens of the University of Cincinnati to the offseason roster. Mickens (6-1, 190) was on the Cincinnati practice squad for the last five weeks of the 2009 season.

He is a Dayton-area native who played at Wayne High School. He was a seventh-round selection by Dallas in the 2009 draft. He did not see regular season action in ’09 and is classified as a first-year NFL player for 2010.

Mickens brings the total number of cornerbacks on the offseason roster up to seven, with recent acquisitions like Keiwan Ratliff from free agency and Antonio Smith from the practice squad in previous weeks.
