Former Kansas State linebacker Emmanuel Lamur has joined the Cincinnati Bengals after a successful tryout on Sunday. Lamur went undrafted and was invited to the Bengals workout just for a spot on an NFL roster.

When asked if Lamur is an outside linebacker this is what Lewis said:
"Linebackers are pretty much linebackers, for the most part. If you don't run out there with the first group, you better play everything that you can play."
Lamur, at 6 foot 4 inches and 225 pounds, has pretty good size and versatility. He also played some time at defensive back while at Kansas State. Landing on an NFL roster is good for a player with not a lot of buzz coming out of K-State. Let's see if he gets on the field with the Bengals.
