CB - CIN - IR
This Week Outlook
The Bengals have placed CB Trae Waynes on the Reserve/COVID-19 list according to ESPN's Field Yates.
Also added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list is OT Fred Johnson. The Bengals are lucky enough to have a bye this week, but we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
Cornerback Trae Waynes, who tore his pectoral muscle before he stepped on the field last month, went to injured reserve Monday and was replaced on the roster by four-year veteran cornerback Torry McTyer.
Trae Waynes was considered the top secondary player on Cincinnati’s roster. The Bengals signed the former Vikings corner to a three-year, $42 million contract this offseason as part of their defensive overhaul.
Bengals CB Trae Waynes could be out for two months after suffering a pectoral injury during training camp.
Waynes signed a three-year, $42 million deal with Cincinnati back in March. The Bengals have one of the more questionable defenses in the NFL right now and losing Waynes will only worsen the situation.
New Bengals CB Trae Waynes was advised by his agent not to partake in any football activities that could put his new three-year, $42M with Cincinnati in jeopardy prior to taking and passing his physical.
Waynes has yet to take and pass a physical for the Bengals, and hasn’t been paid his $15M signing bonus yet. It’s an unusual situation, but Waynes has been advised to tread lightly in case of a freak injury prior to receiving the signing bonus he’ll get when he puts pen to paper. Waynes played four years in Minnesota prior to joining the Bengals this offseason and has become one of the best cover corners in the NFL.
Former Vikings CB Trae Waynes is signing a massive three-year, $42M deal to become a member of the Cincinnati Bengals.
The former 2015 first-rounder out of Michigan State has played all five seasons with the Vikings, and will now head to Cincinnati to play for the potentially up and coming Bengals. Pro Football Focus had Waynes as the 46th highest-graded CB in 2019.
