Bengals claim OL Max Scharping and DT Jay Tufele off waivers

The Cincinnati Bengals got quite active on the waiver wire and free agency on Wednesday.

On the same day news broke that the team wanted to sign former first-round pick O.J. Howard, the Bengals also claimed tight end Devin Asiasi on waivers.

The Bengals claimed two other players on the waiver wire, too: Guard Max Scharping and defensive tackle Jay Tufele.

Scharping was a former second-round pick by Houston in 2019 who has had up-and-down play over the last few years. But his arrival might signal some interesting things for former second-round pick Jackson Carman.

A former fourth-rounder in 2021, Tufele only played four games in Jacksonville last year and is part of the big turnover there. The Bengals wanted more depth after letting guys like Tyler Shelvin go.
