Bengals Sign R.J. Stanford

The Bengals have signed free agent defensive back R.J. Stanford, according to agent David Canter (via Twitter). Stanford, a former Dolphin, didn’t receive a contract tender this offseason, making him an unrestricted free agent.

After going undrafted out of Utah, Stanford played for the Panthers in his rookie season before joining the Dolphins for two years. According to Pro Football Focus, the 25-year-old appeared in just 173 snaps in those two seasons in Miami, contributing more on the special teams unit, where he contributed 14 total tackles in kick and punt coverage.
