Bengals sign mammoth supplemental draft snub

Nobody wanted to spend a supplemental draft pick on LaKendrick Ross, but the Bengals didn’t wait long to give him a shot.

The Bengals announced Monday they had signed Ross, waiving wide receiver Alex Neutz to clear the roster spot.

The 6-foot-4, 350-pound Ross played one year of college football at Virginia-Lynchburg.

Eleven teams attended his pro day workout prior to the supplemental draft, but he wasn’t chosen.

At a time when rosters are at 90, it’s worth taking a flyer on someone with that kind of size.

    You can’t teach size. Especially since he’s the size of two dudes combined.

    I mean, It’s not hard to Google him, but it would’ve been nice to know what position he plays from the article..

    The Bengals have done well with this type of experiment. Usually takes two to three years. Not all coaching staff’s have that kind of time.

    “LaKendrick, honey, what they sayin’ about you on PFT?”.

    “That I’m a mammoth snub, Mama….”.

    350 and he looks like he could add more to his frame and still be an athlete. It’s not like he has a huge flabby spare tire around his gut…he’s just a naturally big dude who’s a good enough athlete to dunk with ease.

    Can’t hurt to take a flyer on him.

    He’d be neat to see as a punter.

    he will make the 53

    His twitter profile says he’s a quarterback.

    The Bills should have given him a look… since it seems their starting NT has some issues right now.

    Fair chance he’s got a better arm than Andy Dalton.

    With Ross as a WR, I’d like to see Richard Sherman try defensive holding on him.

    With the deficiencies at center, left guard… and… aging, injury-hobbled team leader tackle… the Cincinnati Bengals need more than some inexperienced, supplemental draft nobody to shore up the Bengals offensive line.

    And laxer, I’d say more than fair chance.

    The Bengals have had a knack for finding diamonds in the rough over the last few years. Can he do what Vontaze Burfict did with his one shot?

  15. tiggerblood says: Jul 22, 2014 1:35 AM

    Steal

  16. oldschoolomen says: Jul 22, 2014 8:26 AM

    doctorrustbelt, it especially doesn’t make sense to shore up the offensive line with a defensive tackle.

    From one Bengals fan to another, please stop.
