The Bengals have made another addition to their defensive line.

On Friday, the team announced it had claimed defensive end Bryce Sterk off waivers from the Dolphins, who were actually trying to move him to tight end.

Sterk, weighing in at 6-5 and 261 pounds, is a rookie out of Montana State University who signed with Miami as a college free agent in April. He was waived on Thursday.

In college, Sterk played from 2018-19 at Montana State after beginning his career at the University of Washington (’15-17). Last season at Montana State, he recorded 65 tackles, including 20 for losses and 15 sacks (sixth in FCS). He was tabbed one of the top FCS sleepers heading into the 2020 NFL Draft.

Sterk will have a roster exemption and not count against the Bengals’ 80-player roster limit until he passes COVID-19 testing protocols.
