Even though the seven rounds of the NFL Draft are over, the Bengals are doing extensive work behind the scenes. As they finalize their undrafted free agent signings, another can be added to the fold. Per Josh Aldridge, an assistant coach with the University of West Georgia, Cincinnati is bringing in defensive lineman Jason Carr in as an undrafted free agent.

At 6'6", Carr fits the physical mold the Bengals' coaches look for in a defensive lineman. He had 28 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and three sacks last season with the Wolves. In 2015, Carr had 37 total tackles 5.5 tackles for loss and one sack in 14 games.

Carr originally started out with the University of Tennessee, but transferred as a sophomore. The Volunteers even tried him out at offensive line in their 2014 spring practices.
