Cincinnati Bengals release DT Devon Still

Still, a former second-round pick who had his world completely changed during the summer, is eligible for the team's practice squad. The Cincinnati Bengals have released defensive tackle Devon Still, according to Pro Football Talk. Bengals release DL Devan Still, per league source. — ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) August 30, 2014 Still, a former second-round pick from the 2012 NFL draft, spent most of his career in Cincinnati dealing with a collection of injuries or the unfortunate victim of depth at the position.

Bengals Linebacker Marquis Flowers' Tweet Hints At Him Making Final-53

The linebacker position is beginning to take shape, as the Bengals rookie linebacker tweeted out something interesting. The Cincinnati Bengals have one of those double-edged sword type of situations to deal with on Saturday with final cuts. It's no doubt that the front office has built a stacked roster to this point, but the issue is the releasing of talented players. As a former coach myself, cutdown day is the worst part of the job. Former Arizona Wildcats linebacker Marquis Flowers was initially viewed as a longshot to make the Bengals' roster because of the incumbent depth in the...

Bengals release WR Colin Lockett with plan to re-sign on practice squad

Lockett, an undrafted free agent that Cincinnati signed after the conclusion of the 2014 NFL draft, played all four preseason games while generating only two receptions for 14 yards receiving. The Cincinnati Bengals are waiving wide receiver Colin Lockett with the intention of bringing him back to the team's practice squad, tweets NFL Insider Tom Pelissero with the USA Today. #Bengals are waiving WR Colin Lockett, plan to re-sign him to practice squad. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 30, 2014 Lockett, an undrafted free agent that Cincinnati signed after the conclusion of the...

Cincinnati Bengals released Trevor Robinson

Robinson helped stabilize a center position that desperately needed help in 2012 with Kyle Cook injured and Jeff Faine struggling. The Cincinnati Bengals have released (most likely waived), center Trevor Robinson, according to Pro Football Talk. Robinson signed as a college free agent on May 4, 2012 and spent most of the previous two seasons on the team's 53-man roster. When Cincinnati was having significant issues at center in 2012 -- Kyle Cook was dealing with a high ankle sprain and Jeff Faine was just awful -- Robinson helped stabilize the position... if not enhanced it. His...

Bengals LB Jayson DiManche sounds like he made the roster

The Bengals have seven linebackers on their current roster, with Vontaze Burfict, Rey Maualuga and Emmanuel Lamur being your base 4-3 starters. Vincent Rey and, it sounds like, Jayson DiManche, are locks. There really wasn't any logical reason to believe otherwise, but linebacker Jayson DiManche sounds like a player that was informed that he'll make Cincinnati's 53-man roster for a second consecutive year. Blessed to spend another season with these hittas #whodey #letsroar #sophmoreseason http://t.co/4u43rDUZe8 — Jayson Dimanche (@DiMonstAr34) August 30, 2014 DiManche made the roster...
James Harrison announces retirement

James Harrison announces retirement

The former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker spent 328 days in a Bengals uniform, failing to play up to averages and reputation, largely because he transitioned into a new role in Cincinnati. It didn't last very long. On April 19, 2013, the Bengals signed James Harrison to a two-year deal worth $4.45 million. However, 328 days later, the Bengals released Harrison, saving $1.434 million, and sending Debo into obscurity... until late last week when Harrison reportedly visited with the Arizona Cardinals (aka, retread AFC North players). Leaving without an agreement, Harrison announced his...

Uncertainty surrounding rookie OG Trey Hopkins and "fibula injury"

Hopkins was one of several players that were carted off the field last Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals but conflicting suppositions have generated a confusing prognostication. Reducing your roster to the league's mandated 53-maximum can be stressful for coaches. Sometimes it's just a numbers game... maybe a player, arguably one of the better players on the team, loses his job because the depth chart above him is just better. Or perhaps there's a player with a salary that doesn't represent his value to the team. In other words, they have a younger player that's far more cost effective...

Cincinnati Bengals 53-man roster breakdown since 2006

A breakdown, per position, on the number of players that Cincinnati has kept following final cuts, heading into the regular season opener that year. There are times where we'll offer essays about current issues or even stories that were told many years ago. At other times we'll offer commentary, news, and updates regarding the latest issues and news facing the Bengals. And sometimes we'll just go the traditionalist route, aligning ourselves with the very core of a blog by jotting something down for the sake of jotting it down. We're not trying to blow minds here. So here's a breakdown, per...

Cincinnati Bengals Cut-Down Day

All of the stories, rumors and tweets regarding the Cincinnati Bengals cutdown day, culminating in the team's final 53-man roster. At the very least, roster predictions tend to have a lesser crapshoot value than the NFL draft. Many will accurately predict the entire roster... largely because 35-40 players were locks even before training camp. The remaining list of players is a composition of preseason observations and obsession on the fluid depth chart. If you accurate predict the 2014 roster, congratulations (if you did it before training camp, then that means you're good). If you...

Bengals Bites: The Madden NFL Evolution

How far has the game that goes hand in hand with the NFL season come? The Bengals expected roster and what that means for Jeremy Hill. Also, a Bills hat no one will want to own. Cincinnati Bengals' projected roster - Cincinnati Bengals Blog - ESPNThe Bengals were content with having just two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster last season, and might do the same this season. Rookie AJ McCarron would be the odd man out. He didn't practice in training camp after being placed on the active non-football injury list, and it doesn't seem like he's going to practice anytime soon. RB BenJarvus...

Dre Kirkpatrick being fined more than Haloti Ngata is ridiculous

Dre Kirkpatrick being fined more than Haloti Ngata is ridiculous

Ngata kicked a player after the play was over, yet still was fined less than Kirkpatrick.

NFL Trade Rumors: Bills shopping Kraig Urbik; Could be nice get for Bengals

The Bengals will be fine without adding another lineman, but adding Urbik would be a very nice pickup. If the Cincinnati Bengals want to add an offensive lineman, they might oughta look at Buffalo Bills offensive guard Kraig Urbik. He's apparently on the trade block, and could be a quality pickup for little-to-nothing in return. Bills have been gauging interest in OL Kraig Urbik, set to make $2.275M this season, and seemingly falling out of favor — Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) August 29, 2014 Urbik has started 42 games for the Bills over the last three seasons. His 9.3 grade by...

Terrelle Pryor cut by Seahawks; Bills and Rams should show interest

The Terrelle Pryor project looks to be over in Seattle. The Seahawks have released the fourth-year signal-caller, instead opting to go with Tarvaris Jackson and BJ Daniels as Russell Wilson's backup. A 2011 third-round supplemental pick of the Raiders, Pryor will hit the waiver wire, since he doesn't yet have four years of experience. The former Ohio State Buckeyes star has yet to find his niche in the NFL. Rather then playing QB full time, he'd probably be better off trying to become an offensive weapon-type of player that also served as a third QB. Pryor started nine games last season...

Former Bengals Linebacker James Harrison Visits Cardinals

The former defensive menace of the AFC North might be making a move to the desert for a reunion with Bruce Arians. What is it about the NFL teams out west coveting former Bengals players recently? As if the San Francisco 49ers didn't already swap players with Cincinnati enough over the years, the Arizona Cardinals are now creating their own version of "Bengals West". Frostee Rucker, Carson Palmer and a handful of others have joined and left the Cardinals over the past couple of seasons. The Bengals' recent success is obviously a reason for the popularity of the players that they cut loose,...

Report: Rex Burkhead will miss first month of 2014 NFL season

Rex Burkhead is believed to have suffered a knee injury against the New York Jets in Week 2 of the preseason. After the Cincinnati Bengals cut running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, it was a good sign that Rex Burkhead might be close returning to practice. Burkhead is believed to have suffered a knee injury against the New York Jets in Week 2 of the preseason, though no "official" diagnosis has ever been given by the team. It looks like Burkhead will make the roster, but is out for the first month of the season, according to the mothership. It remains to be seen if both Peerman and Burkhead...

49ers star Aldon Smith suspended 9 games by NFL

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith is in the news again for all the wrong reasons. He's been suspended by the league for the first nine games of the 2014 NFL season. Smith has a list of past transgressions in the NFL that led to this discipline. He was arrested this offseason for allegedly yelling "bomb" in an airport. Smith also missed five games in 2013 while being treated for substance abuse. In May, Smith pleaded no contest to a trio of felony weapons charges and a misdemeanor count of DUI that occurred last year. Even though he avoided prison time, the NFL was poised to take...

After two weeks of facing mediocre secondaries, the Bengals were up against one of the elite defenses in the NFL in Arizona. The results were mixed for Andy Dalton.

Bengals will cut Tyler Wilson, Larry Black, Lakendrick Ross and Brandon Joiner

The Cincinnati Bengals have waived quarterback Tyler Wilson, linebacker Brandon Joiner and defensive tackles Larry Black and LaKendrick Ross. Wilson (6-2, 215) entered the NFL in 2013 as a fourth-round draft choice of Oakland. In 2013 preseason for the Raiders, he passed 11-for-18 for 93 yards with no TDs or INTs. He spent Weeks 1-10 of the regular season on the Oakland practice squad. He was on the Raiders roster but did not play in Weeks 11-12, and he returned to the practice squad for Weeks 13-15.
