Bengals Invite Former Steelers Center Justin Hartwig And Wide Receiver Dexter Jackson To Cincinnati

The Bengals center position might not be as firm with Kyle Cook and Reggie Stephens as we tend to think. Whether that be a poor performance against New England, or a general lack of ceiling in the overall product, the Bengals aren't sitting still with what they have on the roster.

According to NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, the Bengals are bringing former Steelers center Justin Hartwig into Cincinnati for a visit.

Hartwig, a former sixth round draft pick in the 2002 NFL Draft, spent his first four seasons with the Tennessee Titans before signing a contract with the Carolina Panthers in 2006. After playing one game, Hartwig was put on Injured Reserve after suffering a groin injury. He was released a year later.

The Steelers signed Hartwig in 2008, starting every game for the next two seasons. Failing to find a trade partner, Pittsburgh released him in favor of rookie Maurkice Pouncey.

Cincinnati also invited former Panthers receiver, Dexter Jackson, who was Tampa Bay's second round draft pick in 2008. He was waived before the season in 2009 before signing with Carolina's practice squad in 2009. He was waived by Carolina on August 31, 2010.
