Bengals Sign S Bryan Evans, Tight End Jeff Cottam, Running Back Cordera Eason

Cincinnati signed safety Bryan Evans, according to Joe Reedy who writes that seven college free agents have signed with the Bengals. The Georgia safety will join Jeromy Miles as the team's newest safety additions after the team shut themselves out of the NFL draft this weekend. Evans ran a 4.46 and 4.47 at Georgia's Pro Day in mid-March. Much like several of the team's defensive draft picks, Evans has excelled in academics.

Cincinnati signed Tight End Jeff Cottam. Well, it would seem that the Bengals found their blocking Tight End. The three-time Academic All-SEC Tennessee Volunteer has seven career receptions, two of which were touchdowns. Cottam, the brother of current Chiefs Tight End, Brad Cottam, has played in 35 career games with eight being starts in his collegiate career. We can pretty much assume that Cottam's only change of making the squad is through special teams.
