With Gibril Wilson likely out for the season after suffering (enter letter)CL injuries, the Bengals decided to make a roster move, along with replacing an offensive lineman injured earlier in the preseason.
The Bengals signed former safety Marvin White and college free agent offensive lineman Chris Rodgers on Sunday while placing offensive tackle Andrew Mitchell on the waived-injured list, who "suffered a knee injury" against Denver.
White, drafted in the fourth round in the 2007 NFL Draft, spent his first two seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, recording a career-high 68 tackles in 2008. The same season he recorded his lone interception. He was a roster cut in 2009. Between Dallas and Detroit, White played 13 games last season, six starts with the Lions, and recorded 53 tackles. Detroit cut him last week.
While White returns to Cincinnati, sticking with the team could be a long road. Cincinnati figures to keep Roy Williams, Chris Crocker, Chinedum Ndukwe and Kyries Hebert. Considering the Bengals could be overstocked at cornerback, would the Bengals elect to keep those four and shift a cornerback into a hybrid role?
