Safety Marlon McCree to visit Cincinnati

As pointed out by B double-E double-R U N, the Bengals will host veteran safety Marlon McCree on Sunday. McCree was one of three players released Thursday by the San Diego Charger with visits also planned in Carolina and Miami this weekend. McCree has 16 career interceptions averaging 63 tackles the past two seasons with San Diego.

The move, in all likelihood will replace the departing Madieu Williams. Another theory is that the team has long planned to ditch Dexter Jackson. McCree would replace Jackson, in terms of veteran secondary, while the team drafts another cornerback/safety hybrid to replace Williams.

The Bengals have eight safeties signed for 2008.
