The Bengals signed Irwin to a reserve/future contract Monday. Irwin entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2019. The Stanford wide receiver suited up in exactly one game in each of his first two seasons, notching one five-yard reception. The 25-year-old will look to secure a depth role with the Bengals in 2021.
Irwin reverted to the Bengals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Irwin hauled in one of his two targets for a five-yard gain during Sunday's road win over the Texans. If he is promoted to the active roster for a Week 17 matchup against Baltimore, the 25-year-old would remain a depth passing-game option for the Brandon Allen-led Bengals.
Irwin was not targeted during his sole regular-season game with the Bengals in 2019. Irwin's only game action came during the season finale against Cleveland, during which he recorded nine offensive snaps. He was promoted from the practice squad prior to the contest. The Stanford product will begin the offseason competing for a depth role in Cincinnati.
The Bengals signed Irwin to the practice squad Thursday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. Irwin will look to impress as a member of Cincinnati's practice squad, leaving open the possibility of being called up to the active roster as a special teams contributor at some point during the season.
