Adolphus Washington is coming home.
According to a release from the team today, the Cincinnati Bengals have signed Washington off the Dallas Cowboys practice squad and on to their active roster.
Washington comes from the Cowboys after just a few week stint on their practice squad.
Before that, he was a third-round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills, for whom he played two seasons (plus one game this year), racking up 56 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
The Bengals were short a defensive lineman after Ryan Glasgow suffered a torn ACL on Sunday. He has been placed on injured reserve.
Washington grew up in Cincinnati, attending Taft High School before heading to Ohio State for college ball.
Washington joins Billy Price and Sam Hubbard as Buckeyes currently on the Bengals roster, plus Chris Worley on the practice squad.
