CINCINNATI — The Bengals added another running back by claiming Cedric Peerman off waivers from the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.

The 5-foot-9, 210-pound halfback was Baltimore’s sixth-round pick last year. He played in the preseason, then was waived and claimed by Cleveland on Sept. 6. He spent four weeks on the Browns’ practice squad and was released.

Detroit signed him to its practice squad and later promoted him to the roster for a couple of games, although he never carried the ball. The Lions waived him on March 16.

Cincinnati is set at halfback with Cedric Benson and Bernard Scott.
