Fui Vakapuna - Cincinnati Bengals

Postby snoscythe » Wed Nov 04, 2009 4:17 pm

Fui, who was cut by the Bengals on the last day of camp had been on the Arizona Cardinal's practice squad, but after an injury to their starting FB and their backup being signed off of the Bengals practice squad by the Buccaneers (any team can sign a player on an NFL practice squad to a roster spot), the Bengals jumped to get Fui back in camp and on the roster in case Johnson's knee injury takes time to heal.

A fortunate circumstance for Fui to be taken off of a practice squad and given a roster spot.

Here's a clip from HBO's Hard Knocks showing Fui getting cut.

Awesome that he's back on the team.
