CINCINNATI - Darlington native Alex Erickson is vying to win the punt return job with the Cincinnati Bengals and is still on the team after the Bengals cut down their roster to 75 players Tuesday. Erickson, a former University of Wiscon-sin wide receiver, has scored three touchdowns this preseason, including two on offense. He had an 80-yard punt return for a touchdown and caught a touchdown pass in his first preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings on Aug. 12.
