According to Pro Football Weekly the Cincinnati Bengals are interested in bringing back tight end Donald Lee. Last season with the Bengals, Lee played in nine games, starting four while posting 11 receptions for 115 yards receiving. Lee was signed by the Bengals on September 13, two days after the team's season-opening win against the Cleveland Browns.

If the Bengals bring back the nine-year veteran, most likely it would be as the third tight end, or at the very least a second tight end during double-tight formations. Additionally it would give Cincinnati a veteran leader who could help Jermaine Gresham and Colin Cochart develop, an invaluable aspect of the game that sometimes goes unnoticed, making the move an ideal low-cost, high-reward type of deal.

Lee has had his share of success in the league. Originally selected by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2003 draft, Lee played two seasons in Miami before signing with the Green Bay Packers, where he spent six seasons.
