Bengals announce they have waived Ogemdi Nwagbuo

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

The Cincinnati Bengals have made a small roster move following the conclusion of this week's OTAs. When defensive tackle Devon Still was placed on I.R. late lat season, DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo (pronounced "oh-GEMM-dee new-WAH-bo") was signed to the 53-man roster to replace him.

Today, the Bengals announced they had waived Nwagbuo under the category of Waived/Non-Football Illness.

A fourth-year player from Michigan State, Nwagbuo (6-5, 312) has played in 36 career NFL games with six starts. He played for San Diego from 2009-11 and also was with Carolina in ’11. He played in one game for Detroit in 2012 and was with the Lions in the 2013 preseason, waived on Aug. 31.

He has 44 career tackles, including 1.5 sacks, two passes defensed and a fumble recovery. Nwagbuo was with Cincinnati only for last season’s Wild Card playoff game, for which he was inactive.

This is a good sign for Still, who was placed on the Reserve/Injured list after he suffered a herniated disc in practice on Dec. 18. He played in 10 games in the regular season.
