Bengals waive CB Lewis-Harris, work to re-sign DE Gilberry

CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals waived cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris on Thursday and closed in on a deal with defensive end Wallace Gilberry, looking to upgrade a line that's been underperforming.

Cincinnati (3-4-1) ranks 21st in scoring defense after giving up the second-fewest points in the league last season. Coordinator Paul Guenther said changes were coming during the bye week.

The Bengals let Gilberry leave as a free agent after last season. He signed with Detroit, played in four games and suffered an abdominal injury. He was waived with an injury settlement on Oct. 11.

Gilberry tweeted a photo of himself in a Bengals uniform on Thursday, along with: ''No place like home.'' A deal could be completed when the team returns next week.
