Bengals To Sign Brian Lainhart

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.
