Dishon had a good camp and is a practice squad candidate for Cincinnati if he doesn't get claimed.
Dishon was one of Cincinnati’s 10 college free agent signings following the 2020 NFL Draft. He was a four-year starter for Kansas State before he went undrafted this year. He graduated in May of 2019 and followed that with his best season for the Wildcats. He posted career-highs in tackles (30), tackles for loses (15.5), and in sacks (three) while being a team captain in 2019. After being uninvited to the Scouting Combine, Dishon’s chances of being drafted were minimized and he ended up signing with the Bengals.
Despite a lot of recent turnover for the Bengals at the defensive tackle position, Dishon was always on the outside looking in. The arrivals of Mike Daniels and Christian Covington all but confirmed Dishon not being able to squeak onto the initial 53-man roster. He can still be brought back onto the practice squad.
