Fairmont State Defensive End Luke Black Signs With The Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Saturday that they signed rookie defensive end Luke Black from Fairmont State. This is Black's first NFL contract after a college career generating 20 quarterback sacks, 37 tackles for loss, a first-team all-conference (WVIAC) and two second-team awards. Black attended the Dallas Cowboys rookie minicamp in early May on a tryout basis, but left Dallas at its conclusion without signing a deal. He also attended the Green Bay Packers rookie minicamp. At last mention he stands 6-6 and weighs nearly 290 pounds. He also graduated with a degree in graphic technology and likes long walks on the beach.

Obviously Black is camp/preseason fodder with the amount of injuries that's impacted the defensive end position. Carlos Dunlap and Robert Geathers are expected to miss the remainder of training camp, leaving Michael Johnson and Jamaal Anderson as your typical first-team defensive ends, with Dontay Moch, DeQuin Evans and Micah Johnson filling in. Still. It's a good opportunity for the kid to, at the very least, show what he's capable of, and god forbid make a name for himself.

He's No. 91.
