Full Back Pressley Signed to Bengals Practice Squad

The Bengals have been busy over the past couple days. First it was calling up Chase Coffman from the practice squad and placing him on the 53-man roster and now it's the practice squad signing of cornerback Rico Murray and full back Chris Pressley.

Murray, who was waived on Monday, was expected to return to the practice squad but many are pleasantly surprised to see Pressley, who you may remember from the Cincinnati Hard Knocks episodes, back in a Bengals uniform. The Bengals have played without a true full back for the entire season. Tight ends Reggie Kelly and Jermaine Gresham have both spent some time in the backfield, blocking for Benson along with defensive tackle Domata Peko in goal line situations. If Pressley makes his way to the active roster, he could do some good for the Bengals who have struggled to move the ball, especially in the red zone.

Pressley (5-11, 260; Wisconsin) is a second-year NFL player. He opened the season on Tampa Bay’s roster and played in three games before being waived on Oct. 22. He entered the NFL in 2009 as a college free agent with the Bengals and began the ’09 season on the Cincinnati practice squad. He was signed to Tampa Bay’s roster on Oct. 28 of last season and played in seven games.

The question is... at 2-6, are any moves that the Bengals make too little too late?
