With Aaron Pettrey signed by the squad, replacing Mike Nugent who was placed on Injured Reserve earlier in the week, the Bengals have one spot remaining for on the 53-man roster with Morgan Trent also going on Injured Reserve (Andre Smith's spot was replaced by Rico Murray). According to Geoff Hobson, the Bengals signed free agent offensive tackle Kirk Chambers on Tuesday.
...a sixth-year veteran out of Stanford. The 6-7, 315-pound Chambers has played in 67 games and nine of his 14 starts came last season for Buffalo. A sixth-round draft choice of Cleveland in 2004, he played for the Browns in 2004-05, sat out 2006, and played from 2007-09 in Buffalo. He was with the Bills during the 2010 preseason and was released Sept. 4.
The move increases the offensive line's number back to nine after Smith was placed on Injured Reserve on Saturday. Chambers, who will wear number 72, is listed as the third string right tackle, per the Bengals.com depth chart. A four-year starter with Stanford, Chambers started all 45 games he played. Chambers also speaks fluent German, making us think that it really has no benefit on the football field, but could sound wicked cool on the line when staring down defensive lineman. "Möchten sie Fußball zu spielen?"
What? You expected us to only talk about Terrell Owens or complain about whom to blame for this season's disappointment?
