Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that the Bengals tried out nine players in recent days.
According to Wilson, the list of players who worked out for Cincinnati includes: C Reese Dismukes, S Ahmad Dixon, WR Devin Gardner, WR Deontay Greenberry, DB Ryan Murphy, LB Quayshawn Nealy, LB Ronald Powell, LB Alex Singleton, and QB Bryn Renner.
Gardner, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Michigan and has been making the transition from quarterback to receiver. The Patriots originally signed him to a contract after this year’s NFL draft before he was waived and later claimed by the Steelers.
At Michigan, Gardner threw for 6,336 yards while completing 60.4 percent of his passes to go along with 44 touchdowns to go along with 32 interceptions.
Dixon, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Cowboys back in May of last year. He lasted just a few months in Dallas before he was waived at the start of the 2014 regular season.
Since then, Dixon has had brief stints with the Vikings, Bears and Dolphins before returning to Minnesota towards the end of last season. However, he was cut loose just a few days after this year’s NFL Draft.
During his rookie season, Dixon appeared in five games and recorded three tackles and a fumble recovery.
