Bengals Officially Announce Undrafted Free Agent Running Back Jeff Scott Signing

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals signed another undrafted rookie free agent on Tuesday in Mississippi' running back Jeff Scott.

The Cincinnati Bengals remained active even though the NFL Draft ended days ago. As they are finalizing their undrafted free agent roster, the team announced that they had another addition to the list. Former Ole Miss running back, Jeff Scott, has joined the team, per their official Twitter account.

Do you think that the Bengals are trying to emphasize the run this year? The team drafted Jeremy Hill out of LSU in the second round, an interior lineman in Russell Bodine in the fourth round and have stacked up a bunch of undrafted free agents to also assist in this area. Two potential fullbacks in Nikita Whitlock and Ryan Hewitt have been landed, along with the big Florida State tailback, James Wilder, Jr..

Scott talked about joining the Bengals through his Twitter account, though the team only made it official today. Sometimes the undrafted free agent game is one of smoke and mirrors, based on early verbal agreements. Because of this, early reports of agreements are broken, but this wasn't the case with Scott.

He ran for 846 yards and six touchdowns in 2012, but injuries greatly hampered his senior year where he had a minimal impact. Scott is the third SEC running back on the roster, with Hill and fellow Ole Miss alum, BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
