The Cincinnati Bengals figure to be active in finding a replacement linebacker after Emmanuel Lamur went down with a shoulder injury last night that could sideline him from anywhere between a month to the entire 2013 NFL season.
They may look to bolster their LB depth by trading defensive end Dontay Moch:
What you’ll hear over the next 2 days: Teams trying to trade players they may cut. Like #Bengals 2011 3rd round pass-rusher Dontay Moch

For the second-straight preseason, Moch led the team with three quarterback sacks, after posting a team-high 3.5 sacks in ’12. He was selected 66th overall by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2011 NFL Draft.
In 2011, Moch suffered a broken foot in the opening preseason game. By October 12, Moch had returned to full practice, but was inactive for the sixth game of the regular season against the Indianapolis Colts on October 17, and ended up being inactive the entire year.
Moch was suspended the first 4 games of the 2012 NFL season for using a banned substance. His 2012 campaign ended November 1 when he was place on injured reserve for recurring migraines.
