Bengals Add QB Will Grier to Roster

White Frame Corner

As Joe Burrow recovers from injury, the Bengals make a strategic move by signing quarterback Will Grier, boosting their lineup before the new season.

Will Grier, a 28-year-old journeyman, is set to join Cincinnati's practice squad. He was drafted by the Panthers in 2019 and later played for the Cowboys.

Grier's NFL journey began with the Panthers in 2019. He started two games, completing 53.8% of passes for 228 yards and 4 interceptions as a rookie.

After his time with the Panthers, Grier joined the Cowboys in 2021 as a backup. His standout preseason performance showcased his potential, throwing for 305 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Despite his stint with the Cowboys ending due to a trade, Grier's impressive performance caught attention. Now, he lands in Cincinnati, ready for new opportunities.

With Joe Burrow's injury, the Bengals currently have two active quarterbacks: Burrow and Jake Browning. Grier could secure a spot on the active roster if needed.

The addition of Will Grier adds depth to the Bengals' quarterback room. As Burrow heals, Grier stands ready to contribute and make his mark in Cincinnati.
