Bengals release Kyle Cook

The Bengals are parting ways with their starting center.

The club announced Tuesday it had released Kyle Cook, who started all 16 games in the middle for Cincinnati in 2013.

The 30-year-old Cook was due $2.5 million in salary in 2014 and 2015, according to Rotoworld.com data.

The release of Cook (6-3, 310) adds to the depth of a fairly thin market for centers. The Packers’ Evan Dietrich-Smith and the Saints’ Brian de la Puente are among the veteran center options who can test free agency once the new league year starts later Tuesday afternoon.

Third-year pro Trevor Robinson is among the options to replace Cook in the Bengals lineup.

    Trevor Robinson is a limited player, too.

    Green Bay might have to push for him if they lose Evan Dietrich-Smith

    Kyle was never the greatest center, but he did play through several injuries. Good luck to him in the future.

    I hope there is a plan beyond Robinson. Mack would be a bit expensive, but hopefully one of the other centers could come in. It would be a chance to upgrade as part of the new “run first” offense.

    Best of luck Cook, Trevor Robinson or Mike Pollack would both do fine there. Draft one and develop him…
