The Bengals claimed cornerback KeiVarae Russell off of waivers earlier today. Russell was a third round pick in this past years NFL Draft out of Notre Dame but was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs in what they call “a football move”. Reports were that he was passed up on the depth chart by sixth round pick D.J. White (Georgia Tech) and had trouble picking up the defensive system.
The Bengals waived guard Trey Hopkins to make room on the roster for Russell, he could be resigned to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
