The Bengals made a special teams switch for the back of their roster Saturday, swapping out a pair of defensive backs.

They promoted safety Tony Dye from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Dye was stashed on injured reserve last year, and has been with them the past two offseasons.

To make room for him on the roster, they waived cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris. He played in three games for them this season.

    All-Pro Leon Hall out for the season, a 35 year old corner , a 33 year old safety, a 30 year old corner, and Dre Kirkpatrick in the secondary.

    DON’T FORGET: the two #3-4 level wide receivers masquerading as the team’s #2 and #3 wide receivers.

    It’s gonna be a close one.

    On the positive side: G – I – O ! ! !

    Actually Taylor Mays was doing a great job this year as a safety/linebacker hybrid. Finally found his niche. He’ll come back strong next year.
