The Cincinnati Bengals have officially re-signed free agent cornerback Greg Mabin, the team announced Tuesday.
Mabin, a fourth-year player in 2020, joined the Bengals in September of 2019 and went on to play in nine games, recording one tackle and a pass deflection on defense and another tackle on special teams. He originally was a college free agent signee of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017, and he’s also spent time with the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers.
This move came not long after the Bengals released veteran cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, the latest move in a complete revamp of the secondary.
To this point, the Bengals have cut Kirkpatrick and backup B.W. Webb. They’ve also allowed starter Darqueze Dennard and backup Tony McRae to leave in free agency. The team has signed free agents Mackensie Alexander, Trae Waynes and LeShaun Sims to fill out the position.
Assuming those three along with William Jackson and Darius Phillips make the final roster, that leaves Mabin, Torry McTyer, Tony Brown and Winston Rose to battle it out for the final cornerback spot(s).
