Bengals cut a kicker to make room for secondary depth

The Bengals were running out of safeties, and had way more kickers than any team needs this time of year.

So they solved both problems at once.

The team announced they had added safety Cedric Thompson, and released kicker Jon Brown.

The Bengals were carrying three kickers anyway, leaving veteran Randy Bullock and fifth-round rookie Jake Elliott.

They needed some depth in the secondary with George Iloka and Derron Smith nursing injuries.

Thompson, a former fifth-rounder of the Dolphins, has also spent time with the Patriots and the Vikings.

  1. Anybody complaining about the bengals having 3 kickers competing in camp obviously didn’t watch bengals games last year.

  2. The criminal jokes are so funny because over the last ten years they’ve been one of better teams at lack of arrests…steeler and raven fans still living in 2006

    Only the Bengals would have 3 kickers on their roster. They must’ve had intruiging criminal history.

    2006 called……….

    Anyhow, I think Josh Shaw should step in and do the job in place of George and Derron. This also potentially opens up the nickel competition between Darquez and WJIII, which I feel will be one of the most exciting competitions this season. Hoping for quick recoveries for G and D.
