Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The Cincinnati Bengals signed a potential backup for Andy Dalton on Sunday, inking quarterback Terrelle Pryor to an undisclosed contract.

Pryor, who released by the Chiefs last week, apparently showed enough promise during the Bengals' rookie minicamp over the weekend that the club added him to compete with Josh Johnson and A.J. McCarron for backup duty behind Dalton.

The Ohio State product started nine games for the Raiders in 2013 and threw for 1,798 yards with seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 11 overall contests that season. He was traded to Seattle just prior to last year's NFL Draft but was released by the Seahawks and did not play this past season.

The Bengals also waived tight end Kevin Brock and signed tight end John Peters, defensive tackle Toni Pole and safety Erick Dargan.

Wide receiver Mario Alford, the team's seventh-round pick out of West Virginia, signed his contract on Sunday.
