The Cincinnati Bengals announced Monday that they’ve signed 10 players to futures contracts for the 2021 season.
The full list includes:
- DT Freedom Akinmoladun
- LS Dan Godsil
- S Trayvon Henderson
- WR Trenton Irwin
- LB Keandre Jones
- CB Donnie Lewis
- HB Jacques Patrick
- CB Winston Rose
- QB Kyle Shurmur
- WR Scotty Washington
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Shurmur, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Vanderbilt in 2019. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Chiefs, but was waived coming out of the preseason.
The Chiefs re-signed Shurmur to their practice squad. He was on and off of their active roster last year before being waived in April.
Shurmur had a brief stint with the Broncos practice squad earlier this season before recently signing on with the Bengals.
During his college career at Vanderbilt, Shurmur threw for 8,865 yards while completing 57.1 percent of his passes to go along with 64 touchdowns and 29 interceptions over the course of four seasons and 44 games.
