The Cincinnati Bengals have waived quarterback Tyler Wilson, linebacker Brandon Joiner and defensive tackles Larry Black and LaKendrick Ross.

Wilson (6-2, 215) entered the NFL in 2013 as a fourth-round draft choice of Oakland. In 2013 preseason for the Raiders, he passed 11-for-18 for 93 yards with no TDs or INTs. He spent most of the regular season on the Oakland practice squad, and was signed to the Tennessee roster from the Oakland practice squad on Dec. 17 and was inactive for the Titans in Weeks 16-17. He later cut this offseason before the Bengals copped him up during training camp.

In college, Wilson played four years at Arkansas, seeing action in 37 career games with 24 starts and setting the Arkansas career record with 7,765 passing yards. He completed 593 career passes, also a program record and attempted 948 passes, the second-most in school history. He threw 52 career touchdowns passes, becoming one of just four players in program history to top 50 career TD throws.

As a senior, Wilson started 11 games and completed 249/401 pass attempts for 3,387 yards and 21 touchdowns.  He ranked second in the SEC with an average of 308.6 yards per game in total offense and threw for over 300 yards in five contests.

Wilson is the only player of this bunch who's likely to end up on the practice squad.
