The Cincinnati Bengals have added wide receiver Tevin Reese to the practice squad. The practice squad was believed to be full with Cobi Hamilton seemingly already on it, but it looks like something has changed.
Reese (5-10, 170) was a seventh-round 2014 draft selection by San Diego by way of the Baylor Bears. He had five receptions for 43 yards for the Chargers in preseason and was waived on Aug. 31.
Reese caught 187 passes for 3,102 yards and 24 touchdowns in four seasons at Baylor, leaving Waco as the school’s third-leading receiver in all three categories. Reese scored 21 of his 24 touchdowns on plays of 40 yards-or-longer, the most in NCAA history.
An explosive player, the average length of Reese’s 24 touchdowns was 50.6 yards and nine of his touchdowns were on plays of 60 yards-or-longer. Reese was also part of the first class of Bears to play in four straight bowl games, capped off with the program’s first-ever Big 12 championship and BCS bowl berth.
In 2013, Reese was a first-team All-Big 12 selection after playing in nine games and making eight starts. He finished the season with 867 yards receiving and eight touchdowns.
