Bengals Place LB Nick Vigil On IR, Promote OT Kent Perkins


The Cincinnati Bengals announced Friday that they’ve officially placed LB Nick Vigil on injured reserve and promoted OT Kent Perkins to their active roster.

Vigil, 24, is a former third-round pick of the Bengals back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $3.013 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $630,000 and $720,000 over the final two years of the contract.

In 2017, Vigil appeared in 11 games for the Bengals and recorded 79 tackles, one sack, an interception and five pass defenses.

Perkins, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Texas back in May. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Bengals cut him loose coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad.

During his senior year at Texas, Perkins started 10 games and wound up being an All-Big 12 second-team selection.
