Bengals sign David King to the practice squad; release Kendrick Adams

USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals made a roster move on their practice squad Tuesday.

The Cincinnati Bengals signed rookie defensive end David King to their practice squad, the team announced on Tuesday. King is a former seventh-round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2013 NFL draft, who stands at 6-foot-5 and over 280 pounds. During his senior season at Oklahoma, he made the second-team All-Big 12 team, appearing in 43 games (21 starts) while recording 70 tackles, seven for a loss and 5.5 quarterback sacks in his career.

According to most scouting reports during the predraft process, King was viewed as an athletic, versatile lineman "who has played inside and outside" and someone that "holds the edge well in the run game."

NFL.com's scouting report says:

NFL scouts might refer to you as a "tweener", or a player who doesn’t quite have a position fit at the next level. But if there’s enough talent in that prospect, he can turn that into a positive – becoming a valued swing player capable of starting outside to stop the run, moving inside in obvious passing situations to provide quickness, and even projecting as a five-technique in a three-man front.

Now the obvious question.

Who goes?

The Bengals announced that they've released Kendrick Adams, who signed with the team last week.
