The Cincinnati Bengals held work outs for a handful of players on Tuesday, including former Eagles cornerback Curtis Marsh, who the team signed earlier this week to help stabilize the team's depth at cornerback. With Brandon Ghee (concussion) already declared out and Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) doubtful after missing an entire week of practice, the team needed depth with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers passing offense arriving into town this weekend.

The Bengals also held workouts for cornerbacks Jalil Brown, Chris Johnson and Peyton Thompson. Former Bengals safety Tony Dye was in town for an invitation but wasn't signed.

Former New York Giants defensive tackle Marvin Austin was also in town for a workout, who had already conducted workouts with the Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions. Austin, a former second round draft pick from the 2011 NFL draft, was sidelined during his rookie season with a torn pectoral muscle. Cincinnati likely wanted to take a look with Robert Geathers going on Injured Reserve, but elected not to sign the former North Carolina Tar Heel.
