Tim Knicky Signed By Cincinnati Bengals

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Former Stephen F. Austin All-America defensive end has signed a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals, confirmed Lumberjack head coach J.C. Harper, Tuesday afternoon. Knicky, a four-year letterman for the Lumberjack defense, played for the 'Jacks during the 2006-09 seasons.
 
The 2009 Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year, Knicky helped reverse the fortunes of the Lumberjack program from an 0-11 season in 2007, to a 10-3 record, an SLC Championship, a playoff appearance and a top-10 national ranking in the final polls in 2009. Knicky came to SFA as a walk-on and quickly fought his way into the starting lineup. After earning honorable mention all-conference honors in his first two seasons, Knicky closed out his career with consecutive first-team all-conference honors, and was named to numerous All-America teams.
 
Knicky was signed as a free agent by the Green Bay Packers out of college, and then picked up by the New York Jets on Aug. 9th. He will work with the Bengals practice squad.
