Cincinnati Bengals make roster moves before playoff run

The Cincinnati Bengals did some roster churning ahead of their playoff showdown with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Defensive end Raymond Johnson III and linebacker Keandre Jones have been elevated from the practice squad to the active roster.

 

 

Johnson went undrafted in 2021 before being signed by the New York Giants. He played 166 snaps but only managed four tackles and a sack. Johnson didn’t log a defensive snap for the Bengals in 2022.

 

 

Jones also didn’t hear his name called on draft day in 2020. He was signed to the practice squad of the Chicago Bears that September but was released.

Since joining the Bengals less than a week later, Jones has been waived and re-signed multiple times and has only registered five defensive snaps in his career (129 on special teams) and none for this season.

 

 

More than likely, Johnson and Jones were brought up for depth purposes.
