Earlier on Sunday (like a few minutes ago), we posted that the Bengals claimed wide receiver and kickoff returner Brandon Tate, waiving Quan Cosby in the process to make room. That was the first of three moves that the Bengals made to the 53-man roster on Sunday. According to the official Bengals twitter account, the Bengals also claimed interior lineman Mike McGlynn and tight end Mickey Shuler Jr. In response to both moves, the Bengals waived Chase Coffman and backup center Reggie Stephens.
Shuler was selected by the Minnesota Vikings during the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Shuler was released on September 22, 2010 and claimed by the Miami Dolphins off waivers, catching his first NFL pass against the Detroit Lions on December 26, 2010.
McGlynn was drafted in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles after playing four seasons as a right offensive tackle with the Pitt Panthers. McGlynn was the starting center during 14 games for the Eagles after starting center Jamaal Jackson suffered a torn triceps tendon before the 2010 season.
