The Bengals have a vacancy on their practice squad, which they'll likely fill in the next few days. Per ESPN's Adam Caplan, the Seattle Seahawks are signing defensive lineman David King off the Bengals' practice squad:

According to most scouting reports during the predraft process, King was viewed as an athletic, versatile lineman "who has played inside and outside" and as someone who "holds the edge well in the run game."

NFL.com's scouting report says:

NFL scouts might refer to you as a "tweener", or a player who doesn't quite have a position fit at the next level. But if there's enough talent in that prospect, he can turn that into a positive - becoming a valued swing player capable of starting outside to stop the run, moving inside in obvious passing situations to provide quickness, and even projecting as a five-technique in a three-man front.
