Bengals Sign Zettel, Waive Willis


The Bengals today signed free agent DE Anthony Zettel, and waived WR Damion Willis.

Zettel (6-4, 275), a fourth-year player, was with the Bengals last week and played in Sunday's game vs. Jacksonville (no statistics), before being waived on Monday. He originally was a college free agent signee of Detroit in 2016, and was with the Lions through the '17 season. He spent last season with the Cleveland Browns, before being waived on final cuts this season. He has played in 45 career games (16 starts), and has 70 tackles, 7.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

Willis, a rookie, was a college free agent signee of the Bengals in May. He had played in all seven games (two starts) for the Bengals this season, and recorded nine catches for 82 yards.
