Defensive lineman Mike Daniels and offensive lineman Michael Jordan, opening day starters from 2020, were among the players the Bengals cut Tuesday.

Cincinnati announced its roster moves to get down to 53 players on its initial roster.

None of its 10 draft choices ended up on the waiver wire, and the team has 11 new offensive and defensive linemen, per Geoff Hobson of the team website. Two injured draft picks, edge players Joseph Ossai and Wyatt Hubert, went on season-ending lists. Ossai, who has a knee injury, landed on season-ending injured reserve, while Hubert (pectoral) joined offensive tackle Hakeem Adeniji (pectoral) on the reserve non-football injury list.

Edge rusher Darius Hodge was the only undrafted rookie to make the Bengals’ initial roster, which has 18 first- and second-year players.

The Bengals released tight end Mason Schreck, defensive end Noah Spence and receiver Trent Taylor.

They waived linebacker Joe Bachie, defensive end Amani Bledsoe, cornerback Tony Brown, punter Drue Chrisman, safety Trayvon Henderson, linebacker Keandre Jones, defensive tackle Kahlil McKenzie, tight end Thaddeus Moss, halfback Jacques Patrick, cornerback Antonio Phillips, cornerback Winston Rose, kicker Austin Seibert, quarterback Kyle Shurmur, offensive guard Keaton Sutherland, offensive tackle Gunnar Vogel, receiver Scotty Washington, halfback Pooka Williams Jr., halfback Trayveon Williams and defensive tackle Renell Wren.

  1. Certianly could make a case for Kyle Shurmur over Fred Johnson, with Smith and Prince both able to play tackle Hope somebody grabs Shurmur to show Cincy their mistake.

  2. Austin Siebert will have a job by the end of the day. He kicked very well this preseason.

  3. Probably the end of the road for Mike Daniels. Successful career. Injuries cut short his prime.

  4. Kinda shocked about RB Jacques Patrick getting cut. What has Perine shown? I’m sure he will make it to the PS but I would think there is a good chance someone grabs him first.

  5. I didn’t see Zac Shula on the cut list. The march to 5 wins begins now.
