The Cincinnati Bengals held a private workout over the weekend with Navy strong safety Wyatt Middleton, according to National Football Post's Aaron Wilson.

Middletown was a four-year starter for Navy and recorded 86 tackles last season with five fumble recoveries and one forced fumble. The 6-foot-1, 192-pounder was a team captain who set a Midshipmen freshman record with 88 tackles. As a junior, he finished with 68 tackles, two for losses, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

Middleton is the safety that scored a 98-yard touchdown against Army to give Navy a 24-7 lead heading into half-time. The play was the longest in the series' history.

The Bengals are expected to draft at least one safety during the NFL Draft weekend to compensate a team full of injured safeties that were replaced on the roster with undrafted free agents and practice squad players.
