The Cincinnati Bengals added a familiar face to the quarterback room Monday. The team needed to explore options to add depth to the position after news came out last week that Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending wrist injury against the Baltimore Ravens.
According to Over The Cap, the 5-5 Bengals have about $10 million left for emergency spending this season. They could use that to bring in a high-priced veteran quarterback to replace their current starting option, Jake Browning.
But the Bengals chose not to go that route Monday.
The Cincinnati Bengals sign a quarterback to the practice squad
According to Tom Pelissero with the NFL Network, the Bengals signed Drew Plitt to the practice squad. Plitt was with the Bengals during training camp last year.
With Joe Burrow out for the season, the #Bengals brought back a familiar face: Drew Plitt has re-signed to the practice squad, his second stint with the team.
So this the QB room in Cincinnati moving forward: Jake Browning, AJ McCarron and Drew Plitt.

Plitt was assigned to the Arlington Renegades for the 2023 season. The Renegades won the XFL championship. Plitt started in three games for the Renegades before sustaining an injury.
Plitt finished with a 63 percent completion percentage for 668 yards, three touchdowns, and five interceptions last season for the Renegades.
