Spain, 29, wound up signing on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of West Virginia back in 2014. He has managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his first three seasons in the NFL.

After playing out his rookie contract with Tennessee, Spain agreed to a one-year deal with the Bills last season. He later agreed to a three-year contract is worth $15 million with the Bills this past offseason but was released in recent weeks. 

He signed on with the Bengals’ practice squad on Friday, making this a quick move to the active roster. 

In 2020, Spain has appeared in four games for the Bills, making two starts for them. 

Calhoun, 24, signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi State in 2019. He managed to make the active roster coming out of the preseason. 

Miami wound up waiving him last month but was quickly claimed by the Bengals but was cut coming out of training camp. He re-signed to Cincinnati’s practice squad last month. 

In 2019, Calhoun played in 10 games for the Dolphins and made seven starts at guard. Pro Football Focus rated Calhoun as the No. 79 guard out of 84 qualifying players.
