Bengals Activate DE Margus Hunt & OL Fred Johnson From COVID-19 List


The Cincinnati Bengals announced Friday that they’ve activated OL Fred Johnson and DE Margus Hunt from the COVID-19 list.

Margus Hunt

Hunt, 33, is a former second-round pick of the Bengals back in 2013. He played out his four-year, $3,671,100 rookie contract with the Bengals before agreeing to a two-year contract with the Colts for the 2017 season. 

Hunt returned to the Colts on a two-year, $9 million contract, but was unfortunately released in a move that cleared $4 million of available cap space for Indianapolis. He signed a one-year deal with the Saints but was released coming out of camp. 

From there, Hunt signed on to the Saints’ practice squad and he’s been on and off of their roster ever since. 

In 2020, Hunt has appeared in sox games for the Saints and Bengals and recorded three tackles and no sacks.
