Chase Coffman Promoted

In the wake of their loss to the Steelers on Monday night, the Bengals decided it was time to give tight end Chase Coffman another shot on the 53-man roster. To make the move, the Bengals released J.P. Foschi who was signed just a couple weeks ago on October and had no receptions against the Dolphins or Steelers.

Coffman (6-6, 250; Missouri) played in all five preseason games and had two receptions for 32 yards. He was surprisingly waived on cutdown day, cleared waivers and was signed on Sept. 5 to the practice squad. After being drafted in the third round last year, Coffman was on the roster for 12 games but was inactive each week before being placed on IR.

While Coffman hasn't really done much, or anything, in a regular season NFL game for the Bengals, it's clear that he possesses a lot of talent as a pass catching tight end. It could be possible that the Bengals plan to use more double tight end situations to have both Coffman and Jermaine Gresham as targets for Carson Palmer which could be especially useful in the red zone where the Bengals have struggled all season.
