Rex Ryan Favorite FB John Conner Signs 2-Year Deal With Bengals


The 2010 New York Jets put together a nice practice squad for other teams. This postseason will feature ex-Jets in Broncos FS Jim Leonhard and “Hard Knocks” favorite, Patriots RB Danny Woodhead. There’s a good chance the AFC Postseason could also feature SS James Ihedigbo for the Ravens and now maybe FB John “The Terminator” Conner for the Bengals.

Conner reached an injury settlement with the Jets and was waived by in October.

The Bengals’ starting FB Chris Pressley went down with injury Thursday night and was moved to IR today. So, instead of relying on former Rutgers and Rams RB Brian Leonard (more of a 3rd down change-of-pace back), Cincinnati signed Conner.

John Conner may be able to help out in pass protection, as the Bengals allowed 6 sacks Thursday night in their road victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Bengals control their own destiny, and could still sneak into a Wild Card at 9-7 if they beat the Steelers a week from Sunday and are defeated by the Ravens in their last game Week 17 in Cincinnati.
