Defensive tackle will be a crowded position come training camp for the Cincinnati Bengals, and they’ve added another piece to the group.

Former Kansas State defensive tackle Trey Dishon has agreed to sign with the Bengals as a college free agent. GoPowercat.com was the first to report the news.

As a fifth-year senior, Dishon posted career highs in solo tackles (23), tackles for loss (5.5) and tied his career high in sacks (3). He also had three sacks in 2016, when he was teammates with former Bengals third-round pick Jordan Willis.

And—shocker—Dishon was a team captain for the Wildcats last year.

We didn’t get to see Dishon do any athletic testing since he was recovering from an ankle injury he suffered after the season.

The aforementioned depth at defensive tackle will make it difficult for Dishon to crack the roster this year, but he could play his way onto a practice squad spot.
