BALTIMORE (WJZ)—The Baltimore Ravens announced Monday morning they have signed former Bengals running back Bernard Scott, who takes the roster spot vacated when Baltimore traded left tackle Bryant McKinnie to Miami.
Scott, who has spent his entire four-year NFL career with the Bengals, missed most of the 2012 season recovering from a torn ACL and was released by Cincinnati in September.
Scott was selected in the sixth round (209th overall) of the 2009 Draft out of Abilene Christian.
Seeing action in 47 career games (three starts), the 5’10″, 195-pounder has 255 career rushes for 1,035 yards (4.1 avg.) and 4 TDs, adding 29 receptions for 165 yards. Scott, who also spent time as the Bengals’ kickoff returner, has 73 career returns for 1,787 yards (24.5 avg.) and one touchdown.
In two collegiate seasons at Abilene Christian (2007-08), Scott became the school’s all-time leading rusher, recording 4,321 yards and scoring 73 touchdowns (63 rushing and 10 receiving). In 2008, he was named the Harlon Hill Award winner as the top player in NCAA Division II football.
