  1. The Cincinnati Bengals appear to be keeping their options open at tight end.According to Ian Rapoport Bengals Ryan Glasgow Jersey , the Bengals have worked out free agent Clive Walford.Walford entered the NFL when the Oakland Raiders drafted him in the third round (68th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft. In three seasons, he has caught 70 passes for 768 (11.0 avg.) and six scores, though he caught just nine passes for 80 yards and no scores in Oakland last season. That led to Walford being waived this offseason before the New York Jets claimed him. Walford would spend training camp and the preseason with them before being waived during final cuts, and he’s been waiting to find a new home ever since. Everyone knows how the Bengals lost Tyler Eifert for the season, but what you may have forgotten is Tyler Kroft got banged up in Sunday’s win over the Miami Dolphins. Kroft suffered a foot injury that knocked him out of the game briefly before being listed as questionable to return. He did eventually return but finished with just 24 snaps on the day and didn’t catch a pass. If Kroft is going to miss time, it would make sense to sign another tight end , especially since third-stringer Mason Schreck is still raw and inexperienced, and Uzomah isn’t exactly the most reliable pass-catcher either.The Bengals do have h-back Jordan Franks on the practice squad, but he’s also a very raw player who needs a lot of work before he’s ready to contribute as a tight end.NFL Week 1 Bengals at Colts: Madden simulation predicts tough loss for Cincinnati The Bengals play the Colts on Sunday for the second week in a row, although this game couldn’t be more different than the last.
