If you were trying to wait a judicious amount of time before declaring Derrick Harvey a bust, well, the time is now.
The Bengals released the former top-10 pick, according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, in what could well be the last stop for the former Jaguars disappointment.
The Bengals actually gave Harvey a $60,000 signing bonus, but didn’t see enough in camp to convince them to let him hang around for $705,000 this year.
The Jags actually traded up to take Harvey eighth overall in 2008. The Ravens took the proceeds and turned them into trade chips which netted quarterback Joe Flacco.
That’s why the Ravens are a perennial contender, and helps illustrate why Jack Del Rio’s now the defensive coordinator in Denver rather than the Jags’ head coach.
