The team had one vacancy on the 53-man roster after Monday's moves, but released punter Shawn Powell to make room for Mesko. Powell dropped a 10-yard punt at a 90-degree angle into the lap of a season ticket holder against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. That's a big no-no.


The team also signed tight end Kevin Brock, to replace Alex Smith, who was placed on IR the other day.

The lesson here is clearly to not shank a 10 yard punt in an important game. Though, i don't think he had necessarily been bad outside of that one punt.

Dont forget about the Bengals placing Devon Still on IR as well and signing DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo

Signing 3 new guys is risky, but likely Nwagbuo and Brock will be inactive for the playoff game.

Hopefully Mesko doesn't have any jitters this playoff game.

Also the Bengals already signed CB Brandon Burton, DT Zach Minter, and K Quinn Sharp to offseason contracts as well.

It's funny how different our reactions were. I laughed because it was so bad. Wasn't even angry at the guy.

I saw the TV angle at some kid with bleached blonde hair, and thought who's that ? Didn't realise it was the punter.

In fairness, the Bills fans did warn us........

Just looked at the contract details of the other DT we just signed Christo Bilukidi. Didn't realise we gave him a 4 year deal. Kid must be something special......

Still suspect Hue Jackson knew something about him others didn't.

That's 3 DT's they've signed in a month, (Nwagbuo, Bilukidi & Minter).

Do they know something about Geno we don't or are they just signing camp fodder early ?

The Bengals didn't sign him to a 4 year contract. It is a 1 year contract. He signed a 4 year contract in 2012. He was not picked up off of waviers by the Bengals. I am gonna assume you found that info on Rotoworld. Its a great for news, but not contracts

Here's a better place for contracts

Merely depth purposes IMO. The Bengals have got a nice setup now at DT with Atkins and now emerging Thompson. Peko's time might be up soon though. Wasn't really impressed with him this year and Still could have an Injury problem thats worse.
