Bengals sign defensive end Sam Montgomery

USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati seems to have always liked Montgomery, inviting him for a workout prior to the 2013 NFL draft as well as another workout after he was released last October.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Friday that they've signed former Texans defensive end Sam Montgomery. Montgomery, a second-year NFL player, was a former third-round pick with the Houston Texans but inactive during the first seven games before hie was waived on Oct. 22.

He, along with two other rookies, were said to be in violation of team rules while in the hotel before going back to Texas. Reports had Montgomery smoking marijuana the night before the game, but Montgomery has staunchly denied those allegations. The Oakland Raiders placed him on their practice squad momentarily in December.
