Bengals sign Will Svitek, cut Bruce Taylor, Brandon Burton

The Cincinnati Bengals signed veteran offensive tackle Will Svitek and cornerback Victor Hampton, cutting cornerback Brandon Burton and linebacker Bruce Taylor.

Svitek has started 18 of 74 career games. He started two games for the New England Patriots last season.

He has previous stints with the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons.

Hampton played at South Carolina and went undrafted largely due to off-field issues.

 

Burton has played in 19 games and joined the Bengals last year. He has also played for the Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills.

Taylor was in his second year out of Virginia Tech. He spent time on the Bengals' practice squad last year.
