The Cincinnati Bengals confirmed several visits on Friday, including defensive end Jamaal Anderson and cornerback Tracy Porter, both of whom we previously knew about. However there was a third player that Cincinnati hosted, former Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans cornerback Jason Allen.
Allen, only 23 career starts out of 96 games, is entering his eighth season in the league with 15 career interceptions. Though he would fit the mold as a former first-round pick (selected 16th overall by the Dolphins), he left Cincinnati without a contract.
