Bengals sign T.J. Conley

The Bengals had to scramble for a punter near the end of last season because of Kevin Huber’s broken jaw, but they won’t have to scramble for one if Huber isn’t able to kick this offseason.

The team announced Wednesday that they have signed free agent punter T.J. Conley. Conley punted for the Jets in 2011, but the team moved in a different direction before the 2012 season and Conley hasn’t played in the last two regular seasons. He was with the Browns last summer.

Conley averaged 42.7 yards a punt for the Jets and had a net of 38.8 yards.

Huber is expected to be fine for next season, so Conley is likely just going to be an extra leg for OTAs, minicamps and training camp. That could change, but Huber has turned in two straight strong seasons so any competition will be slanted in his favor.

    It’s the Bengals… they might go with TWO punters?

    Seeing what the steelers did to Huber, they’d be wise to carry two.

    Huber had a few mistakes last year, this was merely a training camp invitee to keep Huber on track. He will be cut by the end of camp. I’m sure he has no idea whats going on up North.
