Kyries Hebert is one of the team's more productive special teams players, even earning from his peers the role of Special Teams Captain after recording a team-high 23 special teams tackles in 2008. Tied for second on the team with 12 special teams tackles, Hebert was still considered the team's special teams ace.
He filled in for the injured Roy Williams and Chinedum Ndukwe at safety during the preseason, recording an interception against the Eagles and 12 total tackles in the final two preseason games.
Hebert announced through Twitter that he has been cut from the Bengals, according to Joe Reedy.
Hebert is the first surprise cut, based on our 2010 53-man roster projection.
Along with Hebert, Dezmon Briscoe, Matt Jones and Dave Rayner have been cut. Four down, 18 to go.
