#Bengals sign free agent K Thomas Weber to a Reserve/Future contract. He will go on the roster when the offseason begins.
Weber, who kicked for the Arizona State Sun Devils, competed for a position on the Bengals roster during the 2011 preseason. He didn't attempt a field goal in the three preseason games he played in but he did go two-for-two on extra points and averaged 68.2 yards on kickoffs with one touchback.
Weber will once again compete for a position during the offseason, which hopefully will be delayed by a Bengals win in Houston on Saturday.
