Bernard Scott on roster bubble?
By Tim Kavanagh
In the weeks preceding the NFL Draft, the prevailing rumor regarding the Cincinnati Bengals' hunt for a new RB was that they were really into UNC's Giovani Bernard, especially after HC Marvin Lewis watched the speedster at the Tar Heels' pro day. Sure enough, the team snagged Bernard in the second round of the selection process, and his spot on the roster may have put veteran Bernard Scott's in jeopardy.
At least, that was the take from Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer as he responded to a Twitter query concerning both Scott and Bernard making the final 53-man roster by saying, "Highly doubt it."
Should Scott be cut, there are a handful of teams looking for a back of his ilk out there, though none of them really seemed all that interested in him prior to his re-signing with Cincy this offseason.
