Wednesday update: Bengals sign another cornerback to PS

The Bengals filled one of their two open practice squad spots Tuesday when they signed cornerback Walter McFadden, the younger brother of Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden.

The 5-10, 180-pound McFadden, a fifth-round draft choice of Oakland via Auburn in 2010, played in four games with five tackles as a rookie. The Raiders waived him this past Sept. 4 after he played all four preseason games. He was then signed to the Jacksonville practice squad Oct. 18 and released last week.

Then on Wednesday the Bengals signed cornerback John Bowie to the practice squad. Bowie is a fourth-year NFL player. He is from Columbus, Ohio (Northland High School). He was a fourth-round draft pick by Oakland in 2007. He played in two games in ’07, was on the Reserve/Injured list in ’08 and played in three games in ’09 before suffering an injury and later being released. His last NFL activity was with Cleveland in the 2010 preseason.
