The Cincinnati Bengals today have released cornerback Winston Rose from their practice squad. To replace Rose, they signed defensive tackle Mike Daniels.
Rose, a first-year player out of New Mexico, originally joined the Bengals early in the 2020 offseason before spending the entire season on the practice squad. Cincinnati brought him back on a futures deal and waived him on August 31st as a part of final cuts. Rose was added back to the practice squad a day later.
Daniels, a 10th-year player out of Iowa, was also one of the final cuts the Bengals made last week. He seemed like a lock to make the roster before the B.J. Hill trade occurred. Hill’s arrival made Daniels expendable, but the Bengals have managed to bring him back to the practice fields and the locker room. He played and started 11 games for the Bengals in 2020 and re-signed with the team back in March.
Daniels’ one-year, $1.5 million deal with the team has been terminated and he’ll now be paid significantly less from week-to-week. That said, considering his experience, he’ll have a decent chance of being regularly elevated to the active roster to earn active roster game checks.
Welcome back Mike!
