Bengals Add Another Tight End in Lee

The Cincinnati Bengals have signed former Green Bay Packers tight end Donald Lee today. Lee was in Cincinnati yesterday for a tryout with the club and must have impressed. Last year with the Super Bowl Champs, Lee caught 11 passes for 73 yards and 3 touchdowns. This is his 9th year in the NFL after being originally drafted in the 5th round by the Miami Dolphins. Lee has caught 198 passes for 1875 yards and 19 touchdowns throughout his career. He signed in August with the Philadelphia Eagles as a free agent but was one of the Eagles final cuts. He has spent the past 6 seasons in Green Bay and has been immersed in the West Coast Offense. He is also a very good run blocker, something the Bengals obviously plan to feature this weekend in Denver.

In order to make room for Lee, the Bengals once again waived CB Rico Murray. This is the 2nd time in 2011 he’s been waived by the team.

    Marvin continues to tweak the roster. Someone pinch me, I must be dreaming. When was the last time the Bengals picked up a guy during the season that was not out of necessity because someone went down with an injury?

    Clearly this is not a move initiated by Mike Brown. We all know how he feels about honoring commitments. (And we all know how the fan base feels about seeing Mike Brown “committed”.)
