NFL Roster Cuts: Bengals Release Safety Marvin White

On August 22, the Cincinnati Bengals signed safety Marvin White for a second tour of duty, mostly in response to Gibril Wilson going on Injured Reserve. Though one could argue that safety is somewhat of a wreck with injuries -- mostly minor, we hope -- so the team really wanted to fill the roster with some bodies during preseason.

White played two games with the Bengals in the preseason, even starting against the Buffalo Bills. In both games White recorded seven tackles and two passes defensed.

On September 4, White is back on free agency. According to Joe Reedy, the Bengals released White, making it two safeties cut so far with Hebert being the other. That leaves Chris Crocker, Roy Williams, Rico Murray and Chinedum Ndukwe as the team's remaining safeties on the roster.

Our cut list thus far is: Dezmon Briscoe, Matt Jones, Kyries Hebert, Dave Rayner, Isaac Sowells and now Marvin White. Six reported cuts, 16 more reported cuts to go.
