Bengals’ Dontay Moch suspended

The Bengals drafted Dontay Moch in the 3rd round last year as an athletic edge rusher who could potentially play a joker role for them. However, he has yet to get on the field after missing all of last season with injury. Now he’s suffered another setback, a 4 game suspension from the league for testing posting for an undisclosed illegal substance. He will appeal.

The Bengals already have their starters at linebacker with Manny Lawson, Rey Maualuga, and Thomas Howard so Moch was not going to start for them this season, but he could have seen some situational work, especially as a pass rush. He has legitimate 4.4 speed at 240 pounds, but is very raw and is really struggling to get on the field. The Bengals originally planned for him to take over for Manny Lawson, a free agent this offseason, but they resigned Lawson to another 1 year deal this offseason. Moch looks to be heading down a path to irrelevancy.
