The Bengals on Monday made the following roster moves:
Added defensive end Antwan Odom
to the roster from the exempt list. Odom returned to the team last week on a roster exemption, after completing a four-week NFL suspension for violation of league policy on performance enhancing substitutes. Odom has played in four games this season, with three starts, and has eight tackles with a pass defensed.
Signed free agent CB Jonathan Wade
, a fourth-year NFL player. Wade played in Detroit’s first eight games this season, with four starts, and had 26 tackles with three passes defensed and a fumble recovery. He was released by the Lions on Nov. 10. He was a third-round draft choice of St. Louis in 2007 and played from 2007-09 for the Rams, seeing action in 47 games with six starts and logging 47 tackles with two INTs and seven passes defensed. He was signed by the Lions as a free agent on March 9 of this year.
Placed safety Chris Crocker
on the Reserve/Injured list. Crocker suffered a knee injury (torn MCL) in Sunday’s game against Buffalo. He started nine games at safety and had 42 tackles, including two sacks. He had six passes defensed and two forced fumbles.
Placed defensive end Frostee Rucker
on the Reserve/Injured list. Rucker played in this season’s first nine games, with three starts, but he suffered a knee injury in Game 9, Nov. 14 at Indianapolis. He closes his season with 20 tackles, including a sack, and one pass defensed.
