Reports: Bengals acquire DT Covington from Broncos

The Cincinnati Bengals acquired defensive tackle Christian Covington from the Denver Broncos in exchange for linebacker Austin Calitro, multiple media outlets reported Friday.

Covington, 26, signed a one-year deal with Denver in April after spending last season with Dallas.

The Vancouver (B.C.) native recorded a career-best 28 tackles to go along with one sack in 16 games (six starts) with the Cowboys.

Covington has collected 93 tackles, 8.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 66 career games (15 starts) since being selected by the Houston Texans in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The Bengals claimed Calitro off waivers from Jacksonville in April.

Calitro, 26, notched 40 tackles and a sack in 13 games last season with the Jaguars. He had 45 tackles and a half-sack in 16 games with Seattle in 2018.
