Bengals Waive Linebacker Rashad Jeanty; Place Safety Tom Nelson on PUP

As the Bengals look to get their roster down to 75 before Tuesday afternoon's deadline, they'll have to make a decision on some of their more longer term injuries. After Sunday's movements with Antonio Bryant and Mike Windt being released and Gibril Wilson going on Injured Reserve, the Bengals just needed to make two moves.

The Bengals have made those moves.

According to Geoff Hobson, Bengals linebacker Rashad Jeanty was waived on Monday after failing a physical and Tom Nelson will start the season on PUP, allowing the team a roster exemption through the first six weeks of the regular season.

After spending 2005 (his third season) with the CFL's Edmonton team, scoring eight quarterback sacks during the season, Jeanty signed with the Bengals in 2006 and spent four years in Cincinnati. Arguably his best season, Jeanty recorded 97 tackles in 2008, ranking fourth on the team. He was Rey Maualuga's injury replacement before suffering a fractured fibula in the game's opening kickoff against the Jets in the playoffs. Jeanty was the team's leading special teams tackler with 14 last year.
