Bengals trim to 81

Count the Bengals among the teams that are reducing their headcount in advance of Tuesday’s 75-man roster.  Count that as good news for the folks at Hard Knocks, who have a show to get ready by Tuesday night.

The Bengals have terminated the contract of veteran tight end Richard Quinn.  They also have waived defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga, receiver Jheranie Boyd, cornerback Terrence Brown, linebacker Jordan Campbell, and punter/kicker Quinn Sharp.

The Bengals still have 81 players on the roster; they need to make six more moves by Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET.  Unless they move quickly, none of them will be mentioned on Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. on HBO.
