This doesn't really come as much of a surprise. Most knew that Pressley was favored for the fullback job throughout the entire preseason.

The Bengals selected Vakapuna in the seventh round of the 2009 draft out of BYU. He was cut by the Bengals before the '09 season began and signed with the Arizona Cardinals practice squad. He was resigned by the Bengals in November of '09.

In 2010, he was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury before the regular season began. He has no regular season game experience. He'll likely be known more for his hair style in Cincinnati than anything else.
