Bengals Worked Out WR Brett Swain

In addition to working out with former Kansas City Chiefs (and Bengals) running back Larry Johnson and former Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis on Tuesday in preparation for Cedric Benson's pending three-game suspension, which he appealed today in New York, the Bengals also worked out wide receiver Brett Swain.

Swain was the second seventh-round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers in the 2008 draft. He was signed by the team but then was released and signed to the practice squad. He played in six games in the 2009 season without making a catch before being placed on Injured Reserve with a knee injury. 

In 2010, he was active for all 16 games and made a six catches for 72 yards. He was released before the 2011 season after the Packers drafted Randall Cobb and re-signed James Jones. Swain hasn't done much in his career, but he's got a Super Bowl ring.

The Bengals could have invited Swain in to workout with the team in preparation for having to sign a new wide receiver just in case Jerome Simpson is suspended for the drug incident in which he's being investigated for.
