Bengals Waiving LB Trevor Roach, Creating Roster Spot For LB Vontaze Burfict

The Cincinnati Bengals are placing LBĀ Trevor Roach on waivers Thursday to create a roster spot for LB Vontaze Burfict, who is being added to their 53-man roster.

Roach, 24, wound up signing on with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska back in May of last year. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason last year but was later signed to their active roster before being promoted in January.

Roach is currently in the second year of his three-year, $1.425 million contract and set to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Roach has been active for three games but has yet to record a single statistic.
