Things are coming into focus a bit more with the Bengals now that the chaos of the NFL Draft has died down. Along with announcing the club's undrafted free agent list, the Cincinnati Bengals also informed the public of some tryouts they'll be holding. Per Joe Reedy of The Cincinnati Enquirer, four local products will be trying out to make the Training Camp roster.

Of the four, one name is sure to bring a smile to many University of Cincinnati Bearcat fans' faces.

Former Louisville tight end, Josh Chichester will be getting his shot during the May 11-13 minicamp. He hails from West Chester area. Eastern Kentucky safety, Patrick McClellan will also get to show off his talents that weekend. McClellan joins undrafted free agent cornerback signee from Western Kentucky, Derrius Brooks.

Two former Bearcats will get to try out as well. Cornerback Reuben Haley played at the University of Cincinnati and is getting a look from the Bengals. Former UC quarterback Tony Pike is the most notable player on the list of those getting a tryout with the team. Pike was a former sixth round pick of the Carolina Panthers in 2010 and is trying to get the chance to latch on to an NFL roster.
