It's cut day. The Bengals have to get down to 53 men on their roster by 6 p.m. today and it appears that they have announced their first cut. According to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy, the Bengals have released seventh-round compensatory pick from Baylor, running back Jay Finley.
Per league source, #bengals have released RB Jay Finley
This will be the first of many announced cuts today and it leaves the Bengals with six running backs left on the roster -- Cedric Benson, Bernard Scott, Cedric Peerman, Brian Leonard, John Griffin and James Develin. The most the team will take into the season is likely four.
When we did our 53-man roster prediction, we thought that the four backs the Bengals would keep on the roster would be Benson, Scott, Leonard and Peerman.
