With Darqueze Dennard on the mend, the Bengals are bolstering their cornerback depth.
On Tuesday, the team signed free agent cornerback Tony Lippett. To make room, linebacker Chris Worley was waived.
Lippett, who measures in at 6-3 and 192 points, is a fifth-year pro who was originally a fifth-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2015. He spent his first two seasons (2015-16) with Miami, and then played part of last season with the New York Giants, where he worked with then-secondary coach Lou Anarumo, who is now the Bengals’ defensive coordinator.
Lippett has played in 28 career games (13 starts) and totaled 81 tackles, 12 passes defensed and four interceptions.
Worley, a first-year player, played in the Bengals’ final two games last season and had two special teams tackles. The former undrafted free agent out of Ohio State spent time on the Bengals’ practice squad last year before being called up.
