Hudson hasn’t seen any regular season time since entering the league in 2010. He’s spent the last couple of years on the Bengals practice squad, so we should expect him to just be a camp body or some one who’s competing for a back up role.
The 6’5, 330 pound lineman played college ball at Eastern Illinois, where he earned a degree in construction management. There really isn’t much to report on the kid, other than he has a very strong work ethic and was viewed as one of the Bengals most improved players after their 2011 off season program. Still, he hasn’t been able find a way on the field.
Even on rotoworld.com, they mention that Hudson is just a roster fill for camp but, who knows? With the losses of Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah, there is a vacant spot at the guard position. It’s definitely a position we should keep our eyes on during the pre season.
