As with any team's minicamp workouts, the Cincinnati Bengals gave opportunities to players to make the team who were neither drafted or signed as rookie free agents. Several players were brought to camp on a tryout basis and a few made such a good impression on the coaches that they decided to sign them to a contract. The first tryout player the club signed was former UCLA safety, Tony Dye.

According to the official Twitter account of the Cincinnati Bengals, the club decided to sign two more players.

It's possible that Brooks will compete with Chris Pressley for the fullback job on the roster. With Pressley signing a new contract though, it's unlikely that he'll be more than a Training Camp body. It would seem that the best shot that Brooks would have with the club is on the Practice Squad or as insurance due to injury.

Lamur could be a different story. He was praised by head coach Marvin Lewis during this weekend's minicamp, as it became obvious that the coaches liked his ability. He, along with fellow undrafted rookie free agent linebacker, Vontaze Burfict, could both be gunning for a roster spot.
