The Bengals will likely place Roach on the reserve/retired list in the coming weeks in case he wants to return to the NFL at some point.
Roach, 24, wound up signing on with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska back in May of 2015. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their active roster before being promoted in January of last year.
Unfortunately, Roach was waived a few weeks into the regular season. The Bengals did, however, signed him to their practice squad and eventually promoted him to their active roster in December.
In 2016, Roach has been active for four games and recorded a single tackle.
