The Bengals signed veteran safety Chris Crocker, who previously played for the organization from 2008-2012, back to the 53-man roster Wednesday.

Crocker started 53 of the 59 games he's played for the Bengals over the five years he was with the team.

In 2012, Crocker finished tied for the team lead with three interceptions. He was drafted by Cleveland in 2003 and has had stints with the Browns, the Falcons and the Dolphins before spending the past five years with the Begnals.

To make room for Crocker, the Bengals released offensive tackle Dennis Roland to free agency. Roland participated on special teams in the first three games of Cincinnati's season.
