04/15/14 - DE Sam Montgomery was signed by the Bengals.
The 6-foot-3, 262-pound defensive end was taken in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft but was released by the Texans last October without seeing any playing time.
There were reports that Montgomery smoked marijuana before a game. He denied the allegation and then signed in December with the Oakland Raiders. But Montgomery suffered a knee injury in his first practice with the Raiders and was placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the 2013 season.
The Bengals are hoping that the 23-year-old Montgomery can return to the form that he displayed at LSU. In college, Montgomery had 32 1/2 tackles for loss and 19 sacks in 31 games.
Montgomery likely will compete with Bengals defensive ends Carlos Dunlap, Wallace Gilberry, Robert Geathers and Margus Hunt for a roster spot.
