The Bengals have signed six undrafted free agents, per a club announcement:
- CB Antonio Phillips (Ball State)
- RB Pooka Williams (Kansas)
- P Drue Chrisman (Ohio State)
- LB Darius Hodge (Marshall)
- WR Riley Lees (Northwestern)
- TE Pro Wells (TCU)
Phillips capped his collegiate career with an All-MAC selection and helped Ball State beat San Jose State for the school’s first bowl game win. All in all, he notched 137 tackles, eight interceptions, and 18 pass deflections in college. Phillips fully expected to be drafted after earning an invite to the combine, but surgery for a herniated lumbar disc held him back. Now, he’ll look to earn his spot on the Bengals’ Week 1 roster.
