According to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy, the Bengals have filled the last spot in their eight-man practice squad by signing tight end Chase Coffman after he cleared waivers on Monday.

Even though the team waived tight end Mickey Shuler after he failed his physical, they still felt that re-signing Coffman to the active roster to be the team's third tight end wasn't in their best interest.

This means that there is still one spot open on the active 53-man roster that the Bengals will need to fill in the next day or two. Lewis has said that they may go into the season with only two active tight ends so the new player could go anywhere.

There are a few positions that could use some extra depth, like at cornerback, where the team only has Leon Hall, Nate Clements, Kelly Jennings and Morgan Trent with Adam Jones on the PUP list, and on the defensive line, where the Bengals only have Pat Sims, Geno Atkins and Domata Peko between the ends.

We'll have to wait and see where the Bengals add depth. Until then, though, who do you hope the Bengals sign to their active roster?
