Former Texans Linebacker Sam Montgomery Visited Bengals On Thursday

USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals hosted a recently-released linebacker this week in Sam Montgomery. He was a 2013 third round pick by the Houston Texans.

The Bengals seemingly aren't done at making some final tweaks to their roster and they looked at another youngster this week. With Leon Hall out for the year, Devon Still nursing his own ailment, and Andrew Hawkins waiting in the wings to re-join the club after his stint on IR, the Bengals are looking at making a few changes.

According to Adam Caplan of various NFL outlets, the Bengals hosted former Houston Texans linebacker, Sam Montgomery.

Montgomery was a 2013 third round pick by the Houston Texans, but was abruptly released after the team's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. 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.

As a senior at LSU, Montgomery played defensive end and had eight sacks. He was converted to an outside linebacker in Houston's 3-4 system but was not active in any games this season. Coming into the draft, NFL Network's Mike Mayock called Montgomery a second round talent but heard that teams didn't like how he portrayed himself in the interview process.

There has been no news of a contract offer by the Bengals and they will likely go through this weekend's game with the Jets and re-evaluate things from there.
