Bengals Sign Quarterback Zac Robinson To The 53-Man Roster; Say Good Bye To Fan Favorite Dan LeFevour

Along with announcing that the team signed defensive back Rico Murray, filling the Active Roster with the required maximum 53 players, the Bengals made a change at quarterback on the practice squad Tuesday afternoon, according to multiple sources. The Bengals signed quarterback Zac Robinson onto the team's practice squad, releasing Dan LeFevour. Robinson played all four preseason games with the Detroit Lions, completing nine of 15 passes for 91 yards passing and a touchdown; calculating to a preseason quarterback rating of 99.6. Robinson played the preseason opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, completing both passes for 36 yards passing and recording his only preseason touchdown; he had a perfect passer rating that night.

Robinson is quite the journeyman, marking the Cincinnati Bengals as his fourth NFL home. He was drafted by the New England Patriots in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft and released several months later during final cuts on September 4, 2010. The Seattle Seahawks signed Robinson to their practice squad a day later and activated him onto the 53-man roster against the New York Giants on November 7, 2010. Two days later the Lions claimed Robinson off waivers, releasing him during final cuts over this past weekend.

LeFevour, known as the only player with 12,000 career yards passing and 2,500 career yards rushing in FBS history, spent the entire 2010 season on the Bengals' 53-man roster as the inactive emergency quarterback.
