The Bengals signed free agent punter Will Monday, the team announced Wednesday. Cincinnati released receiver Jake Kumerow with an injury designation to make room.
Monday, a first-year player, originally signed with the Steelers as a college free agent out of Duke in 2016. The Steelers waived him after their third preseason game last year.
He signed with the Chiefs on May 9 before they waived him July 6.
With the Steelers in the 2016 preseason, Monday had 11 punts for 471 yards (42.8-yard average), one inside the 20 and no touchbacks, with a net average of 38.5.
If Kumerow clears waivers tomorrow, he will revert to the Bengals’ injured reserve list.
