On the same day that the 136 day NFL lockout ended the league gave teams clearance to talk to undrafted rookies before officially signing them on Tuesday morning. The Bengals made a quick move in reaching an agreement with Brian Lainhart who played safety at Kent State.
Lainhart had 17 career interceptions, 9 forced fumbles, and 349 tackles in his collegiate career and adds much needed depth to a position of need. Brian will now have the chance to play for his hometown team. The Colerain native said about signing with his favorite team growing up: “I’m excited. It’s a dream come true to play for the team I grew up watching, I’m just glad the whole process is over but at the same time it’s going to be a short turnaround having to learn the playbook and system.”
