Trevard picking up his first NFL interception last season
As we followed the preseason journey for the former Cats in the NFL, we were all disheartened to hear about a special Cat cornerback who was cut from the Philadelphia Eagles right before the start of the season. Drew reported on immediate interest from the Carolina Panthers and the Atlanta Falcons for him, but now it looks like another suitor is showing interest…
Trevard Lindley tried out for the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday. We all know Trevard is very talented and should get on somewhere. A lot of UK fans happen to be Bengals fans due to Cincy’s proximity, so this would be an ideal landing spot for him.
The rub? Former Pro-Bowler CB Lito Sheppard also tried out along with Trevard. Sheppard also had a great career in Philadelphia, but his best days are behind him. We hope Lindley’s best days still lay ahead. The Bengals are in dire need of another healthy cornerback for this weekend’s game against the Denver Broncos. Jennings is injured and may not be 100% for game time, and the Broncos were loading the field with receivers Monday night (although Lloyd and Moreno did not practice today).
If Trevard gets picked up, let’s hope its not for a one week stint. Good luck, kid.
