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.
#Bengals didn't claim anybody today. So they are hanging with what they have for now as the fill out the practice squad.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) September 2, 2018
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.
