Hamby: Reportedly inks deal with Bengals (Getty Images)
Hamby, out of Cincinnati's Moeller High School, had just nine catches for 85 yards last season in a year he was hobbled for the last part of the regular season. Hamby, known mainly as a blocker, joins Reggie Kelly, Tony Stewart, Ronnie Ghent, and former Buckeye Darnell Sanders at tight end. The Bengals had hoped to draft a backup for Kelly, but those they wanted never fell to them.
The 6-1, 210-pound Meyer won the Payton Award as the best Division I-AA player after throwing for 3,616 yards, 26 touchdowns and five interceptions. Meyer finished with a 166.47 career passer rating for the 1-AA record.
