The Bengals, like every other team in the NFL, passed on the supplemental draft today.

But they chose to supplement their roster later with one of the guys who was eligible.

Agent Brian Brundage tweeted out word that the Bengals had signed wide receiver Rashaun Simonise, after he wasn’t chosen Wednesday.

Simonise, a 6-5, 190-pound wideout from the University of Calgary, had 65 catches for 1,306 yards and 11 touchdowns last year for a team nicknamed the Dinos.

Six teams showed up for his pro day recently, none of which were the Bengals. But they apparently were intrigued by his physical tools and deemed him worth a shot.

The Bengals lost wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu this offseason in free agency, but they’re deep enough in targets to afford a look at a project.

  1. Just to supplement your article, he played for the University of Calgary Dino’s, not a nickname! Don’t mean to nitpick but hope it helps!

  2. This dude flashed some serious jump ball ability. He may surprise if he can refine his routes and tack on muscle. And technically they’re the U of Calgary Dinosaurs, but nobody calls them that.

    This is typical of Mike Brown paying someone 78 cents on the dollar.

    Wait, the same mike brown that gave a player the largest contract at the time carson palmer signed? How many other teams have given the largest contract ever. Heads up, its 2016 not 1990…might want to get with the times

    ……. and if the owner of the team you follow signed a free-agent that turned into a solid regular performer, would you label him as cheap too ?
