The Bengals have announced a series of roster moves, officially signing two players and cutting two to make room. According to the club (via Twitter), offensive tackle Will Svitek and cornerback Victor Hampton have been signed, while cornerback Brandon Burton and linebacker Bruce Taylor have been waived.
Svitek, who entered the league as a sixth-round pick in 2005, has spent time with the Chiefs, Falcons, and Patriots. The 32-year-old played 238 offensive snaps for New England last season, earning a pair of starts at right tackle during the season in relief of Marcus Cannon. As for Hampton, his signing was first reported by his agent yesterday, a day before he was scheduled to visit the Giants.
Meanwhile, Taylor didn’t appear in a single game for the Bengals last season, while Burton played in five contests, primarily as a special-teamer.
