Bengals Announce 3 More Undrafted Free Agent Signings

Richard Rowe-US PRESSWIRE

On Wednesday, the Bengals added three more names to their list of undrafted free agent signings, officially announcing deals with Jordan Campbell, Onterio McCalebb and Quinn Sharp.

According to the Bengals' official Twitter account, the team has announced the signings of three more undrafted free agents on Wednesday, adding Jordan Campbell, Onterio McCalebb and Quinn Sharp to the nine other names that were announced on Tuesday. So far, the Bengals are rumored to have deals in place with a total of sixteen undrafted players, but the team typically waits to officially announce contracts until the ink is dry upon the paper, which explains the reasoning behind the staggered announcements.

The most interesting thing about this new batch of players is their versatility. Each of them brings multiple skills to the table, which could help their chances at catching on to the regular season roster.

For instance, running back Onterio McCalebb was a dynamic offensive weapon for Auburn, but he also worked out as a defensive back during his pro day earlier in March. Playing both ways in today's NFL is highly uncommon, but the fact that he could do it in a pinch makes him an attractive option. Moreover, McCalebb is also an experienced returner with blazing fast speed and figures to have a shot at dethroning current kick returner Brandon Tate.

Kicker Quinn Sharp is another player with a diverse set of skills. At Oklahoma State, Sharp put in double duty as both their kicker and their punter and was an All-American selection at both positions for 2010. Though he isn't likely to take Huber's spot anytime soon, he could make the team's practice squad, providing the Bengals a solid backup option behind injury-prone kicker Nugent.

The Bengals' rookie minicamp begins on May 10th and concludes on the 12th.
