Two former Bengals playing in the Super Bowl

There will be a former Bengal on each side of the game this weekend in case you are looking for players to root for on Sunday.

While the Bengals as a team are unfortunately not in the Super Bowl this weekend, two former Bengals will be in the game.

Clinton McDonald was drafted by the Bengals in 2009 out of Memphis. He spent his first season in stripes as a member of the Bengals practice squad. In 2010, McDonald started the season on the practice squad until he was called up for the final 8 games of the season. While McDonald did not make much of an impact for the Bengals, he has become a solid performer for the Seahawks. This season McDonald played in 15 games, had 35 tackles and 5.5 sacks.

The other former Bengal player in the game is Andre Caldwell. Caldwell spent 4 seasons with the Bengals and filled the role of a slot receiver. His biggest Bengals moments were in 2009 when he was responsible for last second touchdowns in both the Steelers and Ravens games to help the team sweep the AFC north.



Caldwell will forever be etched in my Bengal brain for those two plays and I have rooted for him ever since leaving the Bengals.
