Fui Vakapuna signed to the 53 man roster

Cincinnati Bengals 2009 Headshots
In somewhat of a surprise move the Cincinnati Bengals have signed FB Fui Vakapuna to their 53 man roster. After releasing Vakapuna on their final cut day this season he was picked up by the Arizona Cardinals for their practice squad. The Bengals opted to keep Jeremi Johnson on the team as the FB and sign Chris Pressley to their practice squad. Last week Pressley was picked up by Tampa Bay. I see this move as a desperation move by Cincinnati. I would definitely rather have Chris Pressley on the roster than Fui, but I hope that he is able to figure it out. Jeremi Johnson is probable for this week against Baltimore. If he doesn't go this could hurt the running game.
