Zane DanielsCorrespondent ISeptember 18, 2008

On Tuesday, the Cincinnati Bengals signed former Green Bay Packer linebacker Abdul Hodge to the practice squad. Hodge, a former third-round pick out of Iowa has been plagued with patellar tendinitis in both knees since his rookie season in 2006.

Once considered one of the top linebackers at the college level, Hodge will have the opportunity to spend time on the practice squad learning the playbook and hopefully contributing to the team in the near future.
