Jeff Driskel

The Bengals claimed rookie Jeff Driskel off waivers from San Francisco on Sunday, giving them a No. 3 quarterback, the Associated Press reports.

Driskel, from Louisiana Tech, played in four preseason games for the 49ers and went 15 of 31 for 132 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. He started 13 games at Louisiana Tech last season, throwing for 4,033 yards with 27 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

The move came a day after the Bengals waived Keith Wenning, who was their third-string quarterback last season behind Andy Dalton and AJ McCarron.

Cincinnati also waived linebacker P.J. Dawson, who played in 11 games as a rookie last season.
