CINCINNATI (April 25, 2005) -- Defensive end Elton Patterson, who played in six games for Jacksonville last season, signed a two-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Patterson was the Bengals' seventh-round draft pick in 2003 from Central Florida. He was on the roster that season, but never got into a game.
He played in two games early last season, was waived on Oct. 5 and joined the practice squad. Jacksonville signed him off the practice squad on Oct. 15. He became a free agent when the Jaguars decided not to tender a contract offer after the season.
