The Cincinnati Bengals today placed LS Dan Godsil on the Reserve/Retired list.

Godsil, a first-year player out of Indiana University, originally signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a college free agent after the 2019 NFL Draft. After being waived by Tampa Bay, he signed with the Bengals as a free agent during the 2019 offseason. He went on to play in all four preseason games for Cincinnati.

Godsil was waived by Cincinnati on final cuts, and he was not with another team during the 2019 regular season. He re-joined the team after the season on a futures contract.

Late in the 2020 season, Godsil re-joined the Bengals’ practice squad when long snapper Clark Harris was in danger of missing a game due to illness. Godsil never had to play for Harris, but he was retained by the team in January on another futures contract, which featured a notable signing bonus compared to other futures deals.

With Godsil retiring, the Bengals’ roster currently stands at 85 active players.
