As C Byers posted earlier Wednesday morning, the Miami Dolphins signed former Bengals defensive back Jonathan Wade on Tuesday. Wade wasn't the only former Bengals player generating some interest with the Dolphins. According to Aaron Wilson the Dolphins also invited former Bengals linebacker Rashad Jeanty on Tuesday.
Jeanty signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2006, starting 32 games (playing 53) over a four-year span as an outside linebacker (mostly as on the strong-side) and special teams. He won the Ed Block Courage award in 2008 which honors those that “demonstrate commitment to the values of sportsmanship and courage.” That same year, arguably his best, Jeanty posted 96 tackles and forced two fumbles. Jeanty broke his left fibula during the opening kickoff during the 2009 wild card game, ending his season, and perhaps his NFL career; he failed his physical in late August of 2010 and the Bengals released him, where he signed on with the Philadelphia Eagles in mid-February 2011. During final cuts in September, the Eagles released him.
Also the Washington Redskins worked out former Bengals defensive back David Jones on Tuesday. Jones, as many of you remember, was the player Cincinnati traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars for safety Reggie Nelson. And we're pretty sure we know who won that trade.
