LB - LAC
Week 7 Outlook
Former Bengals LB Nick Vigil is signing a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Vigil, a 2016 third-round pick out of Utah State, played four seasons with Cincinnati. He’s increased his production each year, and in 2019 he started all 16 games, recording 111 tackles. He’ll look to start at linebacker for the Chargers this upcoming season.
Nick Vigil had a solid individual effort on Sunday against the Browns, recording two solo tackles, two assisted tackles, two passes defended, and one interception, though the Bengals still took their 12th loss of the year, 27-19.
Vigil's interception came on the Browns' first offensive drive but did not result in any points for the Bengals, as Andy Dalton promptly threw an interception of his own. The fourth-year linebacker has been one of the few bright spots on this team and should be in consideration for a starting spot when they host the Patriots next Sunday.
Nick Vigil recorded six solo tackles, six assisted tackles, and a fumble recovery, but the Bengals still lost to the Raiders, 17-10.
Vigil's fumble recovery in the first quarter translated into an early 7-0 lead, but the Bengal's general ineptitude quickly squandered that. The Bengals are still searching for their first win and will try to reverse their fortunes versus the Steelers next week.
Nick Vigil led all defensive players in tackles through the first slate of games on Sunday with ten solo tackles, three assisted tackles, one pass defended, and a fumble recovery in a 23 -17 loss to the Ravens.
Vigil has been on a bit of a hot streak, as he notched double-digit tackles for the third straight game. He might be a sneaky good pick up off the waiver wire if he is still available.
Bengals linebacker Nick Vigil was not on the team’s final injury report Friday, an indication he will play in Sunday’s game against the Broncos.
Vigil returned to practice this week for the first time since sustaining an MCL sprain Week 6 against the Steelers. He had 51 tackles in six games (five starts) before the injury.
