Pressley officially in

Posted Mar 12, 2012


Chris Pressley

The Bengals on Monday officially announced the signing of fullback Chris Pressley as well as the signings of exclusive rights free agents Cedric Peerman, Vincent Rey and defensive tackle Nick Hayden.

Pressley had been scheduled to become a restricted free agent when the NFL year begins Tuesday at 4 p.m. but reportedly reached a two-year deal last week.

Hayden and Peerman are third-year players and Rey is a second-year player. Hayden played two games at defensive tackle with three tackles after the Bengals picked him up Dec. 7 when Pat Sims went on injured reserve. Peerman played in 15 games and tied for second in special teams tackles (13) while Rey played in every game and had nine special teams stops.

The club didn't announce its one-year tenders Monday. The other exclusive free agent, safety Jeromy Miles, figures to sign or be tendered. Other potential restricted free agents are linebacker Dan Skuta and long snapper Clark Harris.

    Don’t look now, but the Bengals-Steelers rivalry isn’t as ancient you think when the two brandish their swords Sunday (4:25 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) at Heinz Field. A total of 21 Bengals have never played a scrimmage snap in the storied series and that includes potential starters in linebackers Nick Vigil and Kevin Minter, right guards T.J.
