When the Cincinnati Bengals configured their practice squad, there were some surprises, most notably they signed a long-snapper (also technically a tight end), eventually signing the eighth and final spot to offensive tackle Jeff Adams. On Tuesday they released Bryce Davis, opening a spot on the practice squad.
They filled that spot on Wednesday with a familiar name.
The Cincinnati Bengals announced that they signed defensive end DeQuin Evans back to the practice squad. Evans signed with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent soon after the NFL lockout was lifted, eventually making his way onto the team's practice squad. On November 17, 2011 he was placed on the Practice Squad/Suspended list for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, returning to the Practice Squad/Injury list with a torn labrum that he suffered in early November.
