Bengals give Matt Scott the heave-ho as part of cuts to 75

Matt Scott played his guts out for the Bengals. As it turns out, it wasn’t enough.

The quarterback was waived as part of the Bengals’ moves to get them to the 75-man limit.

He became expendable when the Bengals took a flier on Tyler Wilson (assuming he wasn’t expendable because of fifth-rounder A.J. McCarron anyway).

The Bengals also waived tight end Kevin Brock of Rutgers, wide receiver Jasper Collins and linebacker James Davidson

They also waived-injured linebacker J.K. Schaffer and cornerback Lavelle Westbrooks, who would revert to injured reserve if they clear waivers.

    I hope that rookie plays center well.

    Terrible guard Clint Boling and a rookie center could be very ugly.

    Oh… yeah… thanks for “playing your guts out”, Matt Scott.

    What a slap in the face.

    Dump Scott over Tyler Wilson (who clearly can’t play) and the second coming of Matt Leinart, AJ McCarron?????

    Eagles should drop Barkley and get Scott.

    Kevin Brock was once in Buffalo. He’s nothing that will make a 53-man roster.

    Matt Scott might be claimed by Buffalo.

    Scott looked awful in the 2nd preseason game. Gutsy player who just couldn’t come up with enough. Left it all out there on the field though.

    Scott looked awful because he is awful

    i know it wouldn’t make much sense with AJM on the roster, but i would put him on the expanded practice squad.
