McTyer was in line to be a restricted free agent, but was not tendered a contract from Cincinnati.
McTyer, 24, signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of UNLV in 2017. He made Miami’s final roster each of the past two seasons before being waived coming out of the preseason this year.
The Chiefs signed McTyer to their practice squad shortly afterward before the Bengals added him to their active roster in September of last year.
In 2019, McTyer appeared in five games for the Bengals and recorded two tackles.
