Tony Pike played his high school football at Cincinnati Reading. He continue his career in college at Cincinnati engineering Brian Kelly’s fast paced-offensive sets.

As the Bearcats quarterback, Pike threw for 5,018 yards and 49 touchdowns and was drafted in the 6th round of the 2010 draft by the NFL’s Carolina Panthers.

But things never panned out in down in Charlotte, home of the Panthers. They also drafted Notre Dame’s Jimmy Claussen and then Auburn’s Cam Newton.

So, with an overflow of quarterbacks and the fact that Pike had elbow problems, the Panthers waived him last August and gave him an injury settlement.

Last week, Pike found him back in his hometown of Cincinnati trying to earn a spot on the Bengals roster by going through the team’s rookie mini-camp.

Pike had a third operation on his throwing arm and spent last season rehabbing, he felt confident to accept the Bengals invitation for a tryout.

The Cincinnati Bengals shocked the football world recently when they allowed two key pieces of their top-notch defense get away to free agency.

Most media reports felt that they could not replace Jonathan Fanene or Frostee Rucker. But they’ve brought in Derrick Harvey and are pursing other defensive line help.

Over the weekend, the team were able to keep one of their own defensive stalwarts in DT Pat Sims.

Sims, a four-year veteran the Bengals drafted out of Auburn in the third round in 2008, played in 11 games in 2011, starting once. He finished the season on injured reserve due to an ankle injury after accumulating 20 tackles and one sack.

In his career, the 27-year-old Sims, who is 6’2, 235-pounds, has 121 tackles, five sacks in 52 games and 23 starting assignments.
