Bengals fail to make any successful waiver claims after roster cuts

New, comments

The Bengals were looking for cornerback help, but it doesn’t look like it’ll come from the waiver wire.

Following the announcement of the Bengals’ 53-man roster on Saturday, it seemed quite likely the team would scan the waiver wire for help at positions like offensive tackle, offensive guard, cornerback and even quarterback.

Instead, the Bengals were not awarded any claims, per Paul Dehner Jr.

The Bengals had the 12th highest priority on the waiver wire order.

That doesn’t mean the Bengals’ roster is final. Changes could still be made like putting players on Injured/Reserve (Cody Core and Davontae Harris are options there), bringing back a guy like cornerback KeiVarae Russell or defensive end Michael Johnson, or bringing in another player who is a free agent.

Additionally, more players are still being waived on Sunday — including a few quarterbacks — so they’ll be available on waivers come Monday.

The Bengals’ 53-man roster remains a work in progress, despite no additions from the waiver wire on Sunday. The practice squad should be announced soon.
