The Cincinnati Bengals have announced the acquisition of running back Cedric Peerman, who was claimed off waivers from the Detroit Lions.
The Baltimore Ravens selected Peerman in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL draft. They released him prior to the start of the regular season, and then he spent some time with the Browns and the Lions, but was never active for a regular-season game. The Bengals are now his fourth team.
Because he was in the league but never on an active gameday roster in 2009, Peerman will technically be considered a first-year player in 2010.
Peerman had 14 rushes for 40 yards and a touchdown in the 2009 preseason.
