The Bengals announced they have acquired defensive tackle Christian Ringo off waivers from Green Bay.

Ringo was the second of two Packers’ sixth-round picks in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is classified as a second-year player.

Ringo spent his rookie season on the Packers practice squad, then played in eight games for the Packers in 2016, making seven tackles (three solos) and forcing a fumble.

In 2014 at Louisiana-Lafayette, Ringo had 11.5 sacks. That was the seventh-highest total for a defensive lineman that season.
