Charting The Bengals Roster Moves During Final Roster Cuts

New, comment

The Cincinnati Bengals have until 6:00 p.m. to reduce their active roster to the league's 53-man maximum. In doing so they'll be forced to either release 27 players or place injured players on appropriate lists that enables the team a roster exemption. We're charting the progress until the team's release of their 53-man roster, which should happen at some point this afternoon.

In the meantime, here's a chart of what's happened so far, reported through beat writers and league sources.

Player Pos. Acquired Notes
Jay Finley RB 2011 - 7th (246) Expected. Started strongly but injuries crushed his chances.
Fui Vakapuna FB 2009 - 7th (215) Expected. Chris Pressley's performance knocked Vakapuna out.
DeQuin Evans LB 2011 - UDFA Expected. Evans was a long-shot but received praise. Could return to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Brandon Ghee CB 2010 - 3rd (96) Expected. Durability became an issue with Ghee, who wasn't impressive enough when he did play. Practice squad eligible.
Max Jean-Gilles OG 2011 - FA Signing Struggled during the preseason to pass block backup defensive tackles; often bullrushed into the quarterback.
Andrew Hawkins WR 2011 - UDFA Played well on special teams but was a numbers casualty. Expected to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Korey Lindsey CB 2011 - 7th (207th) Expected. Numbers game pushed him out, compounded with the fact he didn't generate much interest.
