Tuesday: Re-signed the following exclusive rights free agents: DT Kelly Talavou and LB Dannell Ellerbe.

Thursday: Re-signed WR Mark Clayton, P Sam Koch, and CB Fabian Washington.

Comments: With two out of their top-three CBs coming back from ACL injuries, Fisher gives the team some insurance at the position.

Wednesday: Re-signed restricted free agent S Danieal Manning, signed fourth-round pick DE Corey Wooton, waived/injured QB Brett Basanez.

Comments: Moore figures to compete for a role as the team's fourth or fifth cornerback.

Manning signed his one-year RFA tender.

LeFevour, who signed a four-year deal, is expected to handle the No. 3 quarterback role this season.


Cincinnati Bengals
