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.
