In the sixth round, the Bengals picked running back Bernard Scott of Abilene Christian (and, previously, three other schools).Per the New York Times, Scott has been “at least five times.” Last year, he finished 1.5 years of probation as a result of giving false information to a police officer during a traffic stop.“Some people might hold it against me or whatever,” Scott told the Times.Some people might. But not the Bengals.Not the Bengals.In an unrelated note, jersey number 7 currently is available on the team’s roster. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
