Bengals shockingly release starting safety George Iloka

Bengals shockingly release starting safety George Iloka

This could mean extensions for Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap are on the way. In a wildly confusing move, the Bengals are releasing starting safety George Iloka, according to Ian Rapoport. The team has since announced the move without releasing a statement. Per Rapoport, it is a financial decision, meaning extensions could be coming for defensive linemen Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap who are set to hit free agency next year. With Iloka out of the picture, second round rookie draft pick Jessie Bates will likely be starting come Week 1. Bates played significant portions of the Bengals’...

This could mean extensions for Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap are on the way. In a wildly confusing move, the Bengals are releasing starting safety George Iloka, according to Ian Rapoport.

A stunner: The #Bengals are releasing starting safety George Iloka, per @MikeGarafolo and me. He’s started every game he’s played in since 2013.

Preseason Week 2 Primer: Cincinnati Bengals (1-0) at Dallas Cowboys (0-1)

Preseason Week 2 Primer: Cincinnati Bengals (1-0) at Dallas Cowboys (0-1)

The Bengals look to build on some of the great things they showed during their first preseason game with a visit to Jerry’s World. The Bengals had a fairly good debut in their 30-27 victory over the Chicago Bears. The starting offense looked crisp, Andy Dalton looked comfortable in the new offense behind his new offensive line, and Joe Mixon had a highlight-reel worthy play where he made two defenders miss in spectacular fashion on his way to a touchdown. The defense also showed signs of being disruptive, with Geno Atkins and Carl Lawson setting up camp in the Bears backfield for their...

Film review: Edge pass rush impresses vs. Bears, but interior needs improvement

Film review: Edge pass rush impresses vs. Bears, but interior needs improvement

Dunlap, Lawson, Johnson, and Willis shine on the edge, but Atkins is still the only one getting any pressure on the inside The Bengals have been blessed over the last few years with a couple of the best pass rushers in the game in Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins. Last year, the addition of Carl Lawson gave Dunlap a worthy counterpart on the opposite edge, but the team still needs another interior rusher who can prevent teams from constantly sliding the protection to Atkins. The team is using some of their young talented edge players on this inside, but so far they are not seeing much...

Bengals training camp preview Part 4: Unleashing the new age pass rush

Bengals training camp preview Part 4: Unleashing the new age pass rush

The defensive line is one of the Bengals biggest strengths, and it’s young pass rushers need to start 2018 strong. Veteran defensive linemen Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap and Michael Johnson have seen plenty of faces come and go in the Bengals defensive line room. Through all the turnover in the front four, the trio has a combined 18 seasons of starting experience together. 2009 was the turning point for the Bengals defense going from the cellar to the ceiling of the NFL; and Johnson’s arrival that year, followed by Dunlap and Atkins joining him in 2010, were huge factors in the defensive...

Top 10 Bengals in the Marvin Lewis era: No. 3, Geno Atkins

Top 10 Bengals in the Marvin Lewis era: No. 3, Geno Atkins

Marvin Lewis scored a gem back in 2010 when he selected Geno Atkins to anchor his entire defense. Going into the 2010 offseason, there were mixed feelings about the Cincinnati Bengals. They had just come off of an improbable playoff berth by sweeping the AFC North, but they also had what would become the oh-so-familiar one-and-done exit from the postseason the prior year. Even though the 2010 season ended up being a massive disappointment overall for the team, the Bengals’ draft class from that spring netted a couple of major players who would define the team over the next decade....

Ranking the AFC West by position: Nose tackle

Ranking the AFC West by position: Nose tackle

There varying schemes in the division, but every team has a big man in the middle of the defensive line. There is some decent talent at the position here, but not a lot of separation from top to bottom with no Pro Bowls among them. 1. Broncos -- Domata Peko Peko has been performing at a high level for a long time. He was a full time starting defensive tackle for the Bengals for 10 years before joining the Broncos last season. He didn’t miss a game from 2010 to 2016 and has missed a total of 7 games in his entire 11-year career. Even at the age of 33, he is still a force in the middle. He...
