Cincinnati needed an offensive tackle after losing Anthony Collins as a free agent to Tampa Bay. Newhouse has played both left and right tackle, starting 31 games over four seasons in Green Bay.

The Bengals also waived quarterback Greg McElroy, who spent last season on the practice squad. They signed free agent Jason Campbell to be Dalton’s backup on Thursday.
