- The Bengals also signed TE Scott Orndoff to their practice squad.
Nickerson, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois 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.
Cincinnati waived Nickerson a few weeks ago and later signed him to their practice squad.
In 2017, Nickerson has appeared in three games for the Bengals but has yet to record a statistic.
