Bengals Release 3 Players To Get Back To 90 On Roster

Kevin C. Cox

The Bengals announced they released three players, which, including the team's 10 draft picks, gets them back to 90 players on the roster.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Thursday morning that they have released fullback Jourdan Brooks, wide receiver Justin Hilton and offensive tackle Dan Knapp.

By releasing these three players, the Bengals roster is officially back at 90 players, including 80 signed players and the team's 10 draft picks, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy.

The Bengals have Chris Pressley at fullback and they have John Conner to back him up. At tackle, the Bengals have Andre Smith back in the fold and with Andrew Whitworth on the other side of the line, the team doesn't need anyone outside of Anthony Collins, Dennis Roland and rookie Reid Fragel. At wide receiver, the Bengals have several talented players and won't likely miss Hilton.

The Bengals will have to shave that 90 players down to 53 (only 46 dress) when the season starts for the active roster. With the amount of talent already on the team and the amount brought in by the draft and in college free agents, the Bengals are likely to have to let some very talented players go by the time the regular season starts.
