The Bengals have improved their shaky cornerback depth by acquiring cornerback Kelly Jennings from the Seahawks.
Defensive tackle Clinton McDonald was sent to the Seahawks in exchange for Jennings, the Bengals announced. McDonald has played in eight career games.
The move is reminiscent of last August 31, when the Seahawks sent cornerback Josh Wilson to the Ravens for a fifth-round pick. The Bengals can only hope the move pays off for them like it did for Baltimore, although Jennings’ play of late would indicate that’s unlikely.
Jennings was the 31st overall pick in the 2006 draft; he started 44 games for Seattle including all 14 of his regular season games last year. Walter Thurmond should take his place.
