While some of the names on this last have been known since Saturday night, the Bengals sent out a release today confirming the signing of nine college free agents.

The list includes three players with local or regional connections. DT Larry Black played at Indiana and is from Greater Cincinnati (Wyoming High School). WR Roy Roundtree (Michigan) is from Trotwood (Trotwood Madison High School). WR Tyrone Goard played at Eastern Kentucky.

Today’s confirmations do not preclude the possibility of further signings. Rookie minicamp takes place May 10-12 at Paul Brown Stadium.
