Ringo signed a contract with the Bengals on Friday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Ringo was on the Cowboys' roster for two days last week before returning to the practice squad, but he now gets his chance with a different club. Adolphus Washington (knee) was placed on injured reserve and is the fourth defensive lineman currently on IR for the Bengals, prompting the signing.
Ringo was waived by the Cowboys on Monday.
Ringo spent only two days on Dallas' active roster after having been promoted from the practice squad Saturday. The 2015 sixth-round pick will now be subjected to waivers, and will be free to search for a depth role elsewhere in the league if he goes unclaimed.
Ringo was activated from the practice squad Saturday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Ringo was cut by the Lions in early September and signed with the Cowboys' practice squad. The vacancy on Dallas' roster came when the team waived safety Darian Thompson.
The Lions cut Ringo on Saturday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.
Ringo has played 14 games since being drafted by the Packers in 2015. He was unable to secure the backup defensive tackle job in Detroit and will look for a reserve role elsewhere.
The Lions signed Ringo off their practice squad Wednesday.
The 2015 sixth-round pick logged 75 snaps with the Packers last season, accruing two tackles and one forced fumble along the way. He'll offer depth along the defensive line for the Lions, but is unlikely to see a high allotment of snaps.
Ringo was waived by the Bengals on Tuesday.
Ringo failed to see the field in the Bengals' season opener on Sunday and will now head to the waiver wire after Tuesday's release. He could field interest elsewhere for teams in need of depth on the defensive line, but if he doesn't, the Bengals' practice squad is a potential landing spot. A former sixth-round pick of the Packers in 2015, Ringo has a total of two tackles and a forced fumble in eight NFL games.
Ringo was claimed by the Bengals on Wednesday.
Ringo was waived by the Packers on Tuesday. A sixth-round pick out of Louisiana-Lafayette in 2015, Ringo could provide the Bengals with depth at both end and tackle.
Ringo signed his exclusive-rights free-agent tender from the Packers on Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
The Packers signed Ricky Jean-Francois in free agency to account for Letroy Guion's upcoming four-game suspension, but Ringo will surely be a part of the mix more often, at least during the first quarter of the 2017 campaign . After spending his rookie year on the practice squad in 2015, Ringo appeared in eight games last season, yet he earned just 7.3 percent of the defensive snaps and two snaps overall on special teams, which translated to two solo tackles and one forced fumble. A modest increase in usage is unlikely to impact his relevance in the IDP realm.
