CINCINNATI — The Bengals officially signed former Ohio State punter Drue Chrisman on Friday morning. The 23-year-old was one of six undrafted free agents that landed in Cincinnati.
Chrisman is a Queen City native. He attended LaSalle High School and chose to come back to his home city to compete on special teams.
Will he be the Bengals' punter in 2021? Former Pro Bowler Kevin Huber signed a one-year deal to stay in Cincinnati earlier this offseason.
Chrisman is talented, but beating out Huber will be much easier said than done.
Cincinnati could become the punter capital of America if another hometown kid [Huber is also from Cincinnati] develops into a pro bowler.
Chrisman has special traits that NFL teams look for in a punter, including a strong leg and the ability to pin the ball inside the 10-yard line. However, the best kicks of his career might not have involved a football. Watch his "kick it" video below.
The video was completed during his college days with the Buckeyes. Is Chrisman's video more impressive than new Bengals kicker Evan McPherson's kick that went viral? That's a debate that may need to happen—especially if both players make the Bengals' 53-man roster.
