Bengals Officially Activate RB Cedric Peerman From I.R. & Make 2 Other Roster Moves

The Cincinnati Bengals announced that they have officially activated RB Cedric Peerman from the injured reserve list on Saturday.

  • The Bengals also promoted LS Tyler Ott to their active roster and waived DT DeShawn Williams.

Peerman, 30, is a former sixth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2009. He was later claimed off of waivers by the Browns and has since played for the Lions and Bengals. He is in the final year of a two-year, $2.13 million contract that included a $250,000 signing bonus.

In 2015, Peerman was active for all 16 games for the Bengals but did not record any offensive statistics. He only was able to record 40 kickoff return yards that season.

Ott, 24, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard back in 2014. He was added to the team’s practice squad but was waived after the 2015 NFL Draft.

The Rams would later sign him, only to cut him when getting their roster down to 75 players. The Giants signed him to their practice squad afterwards and eventually promoted him to their active roster for one game. Unfortunately, New York also decided to cut him last offseason when getting down to 75 players.

The Giants elected to re-sign him to their practice squad back in October but eventually waived him once again.

Cincinnati signed him to their practice squad last week.

In 2015, Ott appeared in one game for the Giants. He has not appeared during an NFL game this season.
