BOZEMAN — It didn't take long for Bryce Sterk to find a new home. A few days after being waived by the Miami Dolphins, the former Montana State defensive end was acquired by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Sterk tried to make his way onto the Dolphins as a tight end after Miami signed him as an undrafted free agent after the NFL Draft in April, however he has told MTN Sports that he is moving back to defensive end.

"So excited," Sterk said. "Making that switch with the little time we had was not easy. Now, I can get back to what I'm used to."

He had two productive seasons at MSU after transferring from the University of Washington. He collected 8.5 sacks and 17 tackles-for-loss in 2018 before last season's strong showing, which earned him second-team all-conference and second-team all-America honors. Sterk, 6-foot-5 and 261 pounds, finished the 2019 season with 15 sacks and 20 tackles-for-loss for the Bobcats last season.
