Nick Scott on signing with Bengals: This team has a shot at winning a championship

Veteran safety Nick Scott won a Super Bowl ring with the Rams, and now he wants another one. And Cincinnati is where he went to get it.

Scott, who signed with the Bengals last week after a four-year career with the Rams, said the Bengals were an easy decision: They needed a safety because Jessie Bates and Vonn Bell both left in free agency, and he needed to be somewhere that he thought he could play a major role on a winning team.

“One of the first [reasons] being the need for a safety, that’s a no-brainer,” Scott said. “Wanting to be somewhere where I was wanted. Another huge factor just coming out here on this visit and getting a chance to meet [defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo and safeties coach Rob Livingston] and just talk ball with them. I’m super exciting about what those guys can do, their scheme and everything like that and how they see me fitting into it. And the other side of that is the family aspect. I grew up in Pennsylvania, so it’s not too far from my family. And most importantly, that this team has a shot at winning a championship.”

Scott started 16 games for the Rams last season and now will team with Dax Hill as the starting safeties in Cincinnati.

  1. Goodell doesn’t like Mike Brown. Cincy missed their window.

    Losing both starting Safeties is bad.

  2. Lol,here comes the Steeler fanboys. Excited about once again rooting for a non-losing season?

  3. Steelers still own the bungles. Remind me again how many interceptions jow burrow threw against our defense? AFC North will always belong to the Steelers.

  4. Kenny picket does not incite fear….Steelers get cozy in the basement the next decade. Extra time to look at all those trophies!

  5. Nick “I intercepted Tom Brady and then won the Super Bowl” Scott, forever a Super Bowl LVI Champion

  6. Bates was and is overrated and not worth the money he received. Scott should not be a starting safety.

  7. If you watch film on he and Dax Hill, there is a lot of pain going to be delivered from Bengals Safeties this season. Both are fast and hit hard.

  8. I think there will be some growing pains for Dax this year but I expect improvement as the season goes. Don’t know a whole lot about Nick Scott. I know he doesn’t have a lot of starting experience despite being 28 but there must be something that Lou likes about him. It stinks losing Bell but I trust in what the front office is doing. Bates has always been a bit above average but anyone who watches the Bengals every week knows he isn’t the elite playmaker many think he is.

  9. I hope Cincy does get a SB Championship. They are the only team in the AFC North that is at all likable.
