Riders DL A.C. Leonard works out for Cincinnati Bengals

American defensive lineman A.C. Leonard worked out for the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday, per sources.

The Bengals were looking at the 25-year-old as a pass rusher. Since Chris Jones converted Leonard from receiver to defender he has 66 tackles and 10 sacks in 33 games. The six-foot-two, 250-pounder is ultra-athletic for his size. As a tight end coming out of Tennesse State, Leonard was the top performer at his position group during the 2014 NFL combine in the 40-yard dash (4.50), vertical (34 inches) and broad jump (10-feet, six inches).

Minnesota signed Leonard as an undrafted free agent in 2014, but he was released during training camp. Then he signed with B.C. in 2015 as a pass catcher making 17 receptions for 187 yards and two touchdowns. After that Leonard went to Saskatchewan in May 2016.

Leonard is a pending CFL free agent in February.
