Linebacker DeQuin Evans Joins The Cincinnati Bengals Practice Squad

According to a source with knowledge on the situation, linebacker DeQuin Evans signed his practice squad contract, making him the first known Bengals player to join the team's practice squad this year. The former defensive end out of Kentucky, converted linebacker, led the Bengals with two quarterback sacks this year, including a forced fumble against the Indianapolis Colts. The Bengals coaching staff praised Evans for his work during training camp and the preseason, endearing himself to fans for his work ethic and production. Unfortunately he was lost in a numbers game when the team announced the 53-man roster Saturday afternoon.

The Bengals have already lost one of their projected players on this year's practice squad when the Arizona Cardinals claimed cornerback Korey Lindsey.

Other players we have projected signing to the practice squad includes cornerback Brandon Ghee, wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, defensive tackle Jason Shirley, quarterback Dan LeFevour, running back Jay Finley, defensive back Rico Murray and offensive tackle Matthew O'Donnell.
