CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals acquired quarterback John Skelton off waivers from the Cardinals on Wednesday to compete for the job backing up Andy Dalton. Cincinnati has signed only one free agent from another club this offseason: quarterback Josh Johnson, formerly of the Buccaneers, who also will compete for the job. Skelton was a fifth-round pick from Fordham in 2010 who started 17 games for the Cardinals in three seasons, including six last year. He has completed 53 percent of his passes for 3,707 yards with 15 touchdowns and 25 interceptions in his career. The Cards released Skelton, their Week 1 starter last year, after acquiring Carson Palmer in a trade with the Raiders on Tuesday.
