Bengals Sign Cornerback Pender to Replace Injured Leonard

On Tuesday the Bengals signed cornerback David Pender who was on waivers from Indianapolis after running back Brian Leonard was placed on the IR.

The Bengals on Wednesday were granted a roster exemption until Monday for cornerback David Pender, who was acquired Tuesday on waivers from Indianapolis. Pender has not yet reported to the team and is deciding whether or not to continue his football career. The exemption leaves the club with 52 players on the roster.

Pender was signed as a college free agent by the Philadelphia Eagles but was cut on Sept. 3. He also spent some time on Baltimore's practice squad before eventually ending up on the Colts' active roster where he played three games and made two special teams tackles.

Pender attended Purdue for three years where he deflected 33 passes which was second in school history to Steve Jackson who played defensive back for the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Titans from 1991-1999 and currently the safety coach for the Washington Redskins.

Pender also recorded 129 tackles and three interceptions while at Purdue.
