Jeff Scott waived by Cincinnati Bengals

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Scott was getting looks primarily as a returner in OTAs, and his odds of making the roster were slim, given the Bengals' depth at RB.

The Bengals apparently weren't pleased with what they saw of running back Jeff Scott during OTAs, so the team opted to waive him on Wednesday.

A rookie from Ole Miss, Scott had signed with the team as a college free agent on May 13. He played in eight games with six starts at running back in 2013 while battling thigh and back injuries. Scott had 497 rushing yards on 67 carries with two TDs  and caught 16 passes for 107 yards. He also returned seven punts for 89 yards and a TD.

The No. 4 rusher in Rebels history, Scott started out his senior season with a 75-yard game-winning touchdown run against Vanderbilt, followed by 243 all-purpose yards in a win at Texas. However, he missed four games due to a thigh bruise and lower back injury, and then missed the Music City Bowl because of personal reasons.

Scott finished his college football career with 3,668 all-purpose yards, 2,297 rushing yards, 17 rushing touchdowns and 20 total TDs.

Scott was getting looks primarily as a returner in OTAs, and his odds of making the roster were slim, given the Bengals' depth at RB. He now will go through waivers and can be claimed immediately by any NFL team.
