The team announced that they have claimed offensive lineman Fred Johnson off of waivers. Defensive end Kerry Wynn was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. He has been out of action since suffering a concussion in Week Two.
If the Bengals reach an injury settlement and release Wynn prior to week 10 he would no longer count towards the Giants comp pick loss. They already lost a potential pick when the Raiders released Josh Mauro earlier this season.
It's not that big of a deal as they would likely get only a 7th in this situation but it makes day 3 more exciting the more picks they have. Link
