Cincinnati has been among the NFL’s most active teams in terms of hosting players for free agent visits, and they announced four more today.
They are: Tight end Joel Dreessen, cornerback Terence Newman, running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and defensive end Derrick Harvey.
Harvey is a former first-round draft bust. Newman is very familiar with defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, but is an aging corner in severe decline. Green-Ellis could add some pop to Cincinnati’s backfield, alongside Bernard Scott. Dreessen can block and catch and would be a formidable complement to starting tight end Jermaine Gresham.
The Bengals have made three signings since the start of free agency: Safety Reggie Nelson, cornerback Jason Allen, and guard Travelle Wharton. All three players signed over the weekend.
