The Cincinnati Bengals have had to make some tough roster cuts this week, but the good news is most of the promising prospects who didn’t make the 53-man roster are now on the practice squad.
The latest example is wide receiver Trenton Irwin, who will fill the 16th spot on the Bengals’ practice squad, according to Jay Morrison. Irwin was waived Wednesday to make room for the additions of defensive end Wyatt Ray and defensive back Nick McCloud to the roster after being claimed off waivers.
Originally an undrafted free agent out of Stanford in 2019, Irwin appeared in 53 career college games and caught 152 passes (10th in school history) for 1,738 yards (12th in school history) and five touchdowns. He also returned 22 punts for 230 yards.
As a senior in 2018, Irwin hauled in 60 passes for 685 yards and two scores. He finished his college career with at least one catch in 40-straight games.
Irwin would spend most of the 2019 and ‘20 seasons on the Bengals practice squad before having a breakout during this year’s training camp and preseason, which helped him make the initial 53-man roster.
