News: The Bengals added to their defensive line depth on Friday by signing free agent Sam Montgomery, an end who was Houston's third-round pick last year.
Impact: Montgomery was listed as a linebacker by the Texans. He was inactive for the first seven games and was waived on Oct. 22. Oakland signed him to the practice squad in December. The 6-foot-3, 262-pound lineman played three seasons at LSU, getting 19 sacks during his career. He helped the Tigers reach the 2011 national title game, won by Alabama.

News: Montgomery (knee) has signed with the Bengals, Joe Reedy of FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Impact: Montgomery had first-round potential coming out of college due to his immense athleticism, but injury and character issues plagued his entire first year in the league. The Bengals may have a steal here if they can properly manage his off-the-field issues, but Montgomery has yet to prove himself at the highest level.
