Bengals claim receiver Jasper Collins off waivers


The Cincinnati Bengals claimed wide receiver Jasper Collins off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday.

Collins is in his second year in the league out of Division III Mount Union University – the alma mater of Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon and Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III.

Collins was signed as an undrafted free agent last year by the Miami Dolphins. He then landed on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring injury in training camp. Collins later signed with the Cleveland Browns on their practice squad after reaching an injury settlement with Miami. He was later released and signed by Pittsburgh to a futures contract in February.

Collins had 92 receptions for 1,694 yards with 22 touchdowns in his final season at Mount Union, earning Division III All-American team honors.

  1. There you go doctor – the true #2 you were looking for.

    To get him signed though they might need to sweeten the pot a bit for moral. Can you imagine the disappointment of going from thinking you’ll be catching on-a-rope TDs from Big Ben, to knowing you’ll be chasing down errant ducks, and the subsequent interceptor defenders.

  2. living in the past still you are. If it wasn’t for ben’s bad karma y’all would have had more rings. Your current head coach i don’t believe has the intestinal fortitude to do what Iron chin did. At least he was respectable.
    I do admire the optimism though. It’s going to be fun watching your team getting out hustled and out steeler’d. Marvin has his down side no doubt. His heart though comes from where he was born.
    So it was only a matter of time before this is the status quo in the AFCN.
    With how the brownies have been making moves, i see Baltimore and Pittsburg fighting to stay out of the cellar. Personally i don’t think either team gets above 9-7.
