Bachie originally went undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft, and was signed by the New Orleans Saints in May of 2020. He was a member of their practice squad until he was waived by the Saints on Sept. 7 of the same year, and claimed by the Philadelphia Eagles in Dec. of 2020.
Bachie spent the remainder of the season with the Eagles before getting waived by them on May 25, 2021. He was then picked up off the waivers by the Bengals a day later, and has been with the team ever since.
Bachie got his 1st NFL appearance not on a practice squad in the Bengal’s game against the Detroit Lions in Week 6 of the 2021 NFL season after being promoted to the active roster on October 16. He would later get signed by the Bengals 10 days later, but would spend the rest of the season on injured reserve after a knee injury in Week 14.
