Bengals Sign LB Tim Knicky And FB James Develin To The Practice Squad; Waive FB Joe Tronzo

Along with replacing one place kicker with four career field goal attempts with another kicker with zero career field goal attempts since 2007 when he left Fresno State, the Bengals made more roster moves on the practice squad level.

Cincinnati waived fullback Joe Tronzo from the team's practice squad for another fullback James Develin and linebacker Tim Knicky.

Develin, formerly of Brown University, played on the defensive line and even converted to linebacker while in the Cleveland Browns rookie minicamp in early May. Develin is a three-time All-Ivy player and even recorded 16 tackles for loss one season. However, the Bengals have him listed as a fullback. What is it with this team and having tight ends and linebackers play fullbacks?

Tim Knicky, a linebacker with actually some experience on that side of the ball (he played defensive end in college), was a former walk-on at Stephen F. Austin and a former AP All-American.
