The Bengals today signed rookie DE/DT Ventrell Jenkins of Kentucky.
Jenkins (6-1, 286) entered the NFL this past May 1 as a college free agent signee with Buffalo. He was waived/injured on Aug. 1 with a knee sprain, reverted to Buffalo’s Reserve/Injured list after clearing waivers, and was released by the Bills on Friday of last week after completing his rehab.
A native of Columbia, S.C., Jenkins played four seasons (2005-08) for Kentucky. He had 92 career tackles, with 9.5 sacks and 15 tackles-for-loss.
