The Cincinnati Bengals needed to add some depth in their secondary prior to facing Aaron Rodgers and the Green bay Packers this Sunday, and the first move they made was re-signing safety Jeromy Miles today after cutting him prior to Monday night’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The other big move was signing former Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Curtis Marsh, who was a third round selection of them in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Utah State. Marsh was a contributor on the team’s special teams units and has provided depth at cornerback, but was cut after final roster cuts, ironically so the team could add former Bengals CB Shawn Prater.
Marsh had surgery as the result of a broken hand in August, and was not available for the last two preseason games. He’s played in 22 games over the past two seasons, including 15 last year, when he had 10 special teams tackles and six tackles on defense.
Marsh may very well be active for Sunday’s game after Brandon Ghee and Dre Kirkpatrick didn’t practice today, and both could miss Sunday’s contest.
