     Career transactions: Selected by Cincinnati in fourth round of 2017 NFL Draft (128th overall) ... Signed with Bengals on 5-17-17.

 

     Coach James Urban says: “He is big and long and runs fast. Some of those balls from their quarterback were thrown pretty far down the field. That’s what they did with him. He transitions well. There’s some route-running techniques that we’ll get him to do our way, but that’s what everybody has. He’s been well-coached at Tennessee. He had an injury two years ago that took him off the field a bit, so that’s why his career numbers aren’t what they could be. He had a fine year (in college) this year, and we think he can stretch the field at this level as well.”
