Scott, who missed almost the entire 2012 season with an ACL tear, will compete for the chance to be the change-of-pace back to BenJarvus Green-Ellis in the Bengals' backfield with Cedric Peerman and a possible draft pick. Scott has shown promise in his time with the team, but has also struggled to stay on the field and has some durability issues.
Scott has carried the ball 255 times for a total of 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. He has also caught 29 passes for 165 yards. He also has returned 73 kickoffs for 1,787 yards and a touchdown, which was scored against the Steelers in '09.
