The Cincinnati Bengals have announced the signing of former Loveland High School standout quarterback Drew Plitt.
Plitt, a 2013 state champion with Loveland, set the school record for career touchdown passes (42) and led the Tigers to an undefeated record en route to the 2013 Ohio Division II title.
Signed as a college free agent, Plitt played 46 career games for Ball State University, completing 62.4% of his passes (777 for 1246) for 9,062 yards and 68 touchdowns.
He was also valuable to the Cardinals with his legs, running for 423 yards and 14 scores.
In a corresponding move, the Bengals waived cornerback John Brannon, who joined the team last December as a member of the practice squad.
The Bengals have also activated Alex Cappa, one of the key offseason offensive line acquisitions, as well as halfback Samaje Perine, from the Physically Unable to Perform list.
