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.
