The Cincinnati Bengals added 11 undrafted free agents in the first few hours after the NFL Draft, including several that can contribute at skill positions and one who could push Mike Nugent to be the team's starting kicker.
After a draft where the Bengals took two running backs (Rex Burkhead and Giovani Bernard), a wide receiver (Cobi Hamilton) and a tight end (Tyler Eifert), Cincinnati added more players at spots where they could contribute to an offense run by Andy Dalton. Michigan's Roy Roundtree and Eastern Kentucky's Tyrone Goard are wide receivers, Auburn's Onterrio McCalebb is a running back, and although Troy Stoudermire is listed as a corner, he played wide out in college at Minnesota. McCalebb stands out - his unbelievable 4.34 40 was the second-fastest amongst all players at the combine - but he has to work on aspects of his game besides blazing straight line speed if he wants to hang in the NFL.
Bengals fans will also be relieved that kicker Quinn Sharp is coming to camp to give incumbent Mike Nugent a run for his money, although there's a chance Cincinnati is just interested in the Oklahoma State product as a kickoff specialist.
