Bengals acquire rookie defensive end Bryce Sterk off of waivers from Dolphins

The Bengals added another defensive linemen on Friday

CINCINNATI — The Bengals acquired defensive end Bryce Sterk on Friday. They claimed him after he was waived by the Dolphins on Aug. 13. 

Sterk, a rookie from Montana State University, signed with Miami as an undrafted free agent in April. He had 65 tackles last season (20 for loss) and 15 sacks.
