The Cincinnati Bengals have signed Sam Montgomery to a futures contract, thew team announced Monday.

Montgomery, a 6-3, 270-pound defensive end out of LSU, spent training camp with the Bengals after being drafted in the third round of the 2013 NFL draft by the Texans. He was waived his rookie season after reportedly being caught with marijuana in his team hotel room.

Montgomery was signed in April of 2014 after spending the rest of the 2013 season on the Oakland Raiders practice squad before being let go. While he didn't make the Bengals' final 53-man roster, he was later added to their practice squad. Since coming out of LSU in 2013, Montgomery has yet to play in an NFL game.

In 2011, Montgomery started 11 of 14 games as a sophomore, while accumulating 13.5 tackles for loss, nine sacks and garnering first-team All-SEC honors for the Tigers. In 2012, Montgomery record 37 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, and 8 sacks, while achieving first-team all-conference honors, as well as a third-team All-American selection by the Associated Press.

After getting little productions out of their defensive ends this past season, Montgomery will have a great opportunity to earn a roster spot with the team in 2015.
