Vaughn Meatoga returns for another tour in Cincinnati

Meatoga spent time in Cincinnati last year during the preseason before he was cut.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Friday that they've signed defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga, who was on Cincinnati's roster during the preseason last year. Meatoga didn't make the cut when the team finalized their 53-man roster. The first-year player had stints in Oakland and Seattle on their respective practice squads.

Bengals defensive line coach Jay Hayes actively scouted Meatoga during the predraft process in 2012. Rob Rang with CBSSports.com wrote in 2012.

Of Hawaii's players, defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga was not surprisingly the most impressive prospect. The 6-1, 299-pounder is the 22nd-rated defensive tackle in the 2012 class. He was invited to the Scouting Combine, and stood by those numbers, largely sitting out Monday's agility drills. He did participate in the vertical jump (31") and broad jump (9'2") Monday. He lifted the 225-pound bench press 27 times in Indianapolis, ran a 5.00-second 40-yard dash and was fifth among all defensive linemen with a 4.21-second short shuttle.

With the teams signing wide receiver Jheranie Boyd and claiming offensive tackle Jason Weaver on Thursday, Meatoga gives the Bengals a full 90-man roster.
