NFL Roster Cuts: Bengals Release Chase Coffman and Injured/Waived Fui Vakapuna

To me, when the Bengals released Kyries Hebert, it was a surprise. But now, that's not the biggest surprise of the day. According to Joe Reedy, the Bengals released tight end Chase Coffman on Saturday. With Jermaine Gresham, Reggie Kelly and Daniel Coats, Coffman seemed like the odd man out. However, it doesn't limit the surprise, considering that Coffman spent his rookie year injured and showed vast improvements with physical play in training camp and during the preseason.

We had Coffman as a lock in our roster prediction.

So that means Fui Vakapuna is in? No. According to Aaron Wilson, Vakapuna was also released by the Bengals. The team's opening offseason starting fullback (that makes sense, doesn't it?), injured his shoulder early in training camp and never recovered enough to play in the preseason. Vakapuna is injured/waived.
