Yesterday we commented on a quote by offensive coordinator Jay Gruden that the Bengals will keep the door open to bring in another tight end, adding to their thin (quantity, not quality) roster of two. If Jermaine Gresham or Colin Cochart the team will be down to one player and it could dampen the team's style, using several double tight end sets against the Cleveland Browns.

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals invited tight end Donald Lee on Tuesday. Lee, an eight-year veteran that was drafted in the fifth round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, spent the last six seasons with the Green Bay Packers before signing on with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was released during final cuts on Sept. 3. Lee has 198 career receptions for 1,875 yards receiving and 19 touchdowns.

The Bengals also held tryouts for cornerbacks Lito Sheppard and Trevard Lindley on Tuesday. A two-time Pro Bowl selection and All-Pro player (2004, 2006), Sheppard was released during final cuts by the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 3. During his nine-year career, Sheppard posted 19 career interceptions. What is it with the number 19 among this bunch?

Trevard Lindley was Philadelphia's fourth round pick during the 2010 NFL Draft, released by the Eagles less than a week ago.
