The Bengals worked out three defensive ends (at least that we know of) on Tuesday, signing one to the practice squad.

Prior to signing defensive end Kendrick Adams to the team's practice squad, the Cincinnati Bengals also worked out defensive ends Markus White and Cam Henderson on Tuesday, according to reports.

White, who played college football at Florida State University, is a former seventh round draft pick during the 2011 NFL draft by the Washington Redskins. Washington converted him to a defensive end in their 3-4 alignment, making him a third-stringer behind Ryan Kerrigan's group.

White played two games in '11, but was released the following year during final cuts after suffering a fractured rib and bruised kidney. He spent time on Tampa Bay's practice squad before the Redskins' re-signed him to the 53-man roster following Brian Orakpo's season-ending injury. Eventually he returned to Tampa Bay's practice squad later that month.

Cam Henderson was signed as a college free agent by the Atlanta Falcons following the 2013 NFL draft. He was one of 11 players released in August to get Atlanta's roster down to the maximum 75 players.
