Bengals waive McCalebb; Club terminates Cobi Hamilton exemption

New, comments

The 2013 6th-round pick out of Arkansas hasn't lived up to his potential to this point, and apparently, he's not done enough to earn a spot on the practice squad.

The Cincinnati Bengals thought about bringing Cobi Hamilton back to the practice squad, but they've decided to move on.

They're also waiving cornerback Onterio McCalebb, who was signed from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday after the team realized Darqueze Dennard wasn't going to play Sunday.

The 2013 6th-round pick out of Arkansas hasn't lived up to his potential to this point, and apparently, he's not done enough to earn a spot on the practice squad.

Hamilton had his best preseason game in Week 4 vs. the Indianapolis Coltshighlighted by his 50-yard catch-and-run for the score. Unfortunately for him, the Bengals had probably already decided Hamilton wasn't good enough for them.

As for McCalebb, he was active Sunday, and if there's another injury at CB this year, he could be called back up to the 53-man roster again, depending on the depth of the cornerbacks throughout the season. Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com said that the team re-signed him to the Practice Squad, but there hasn't been an official announcement by the club on that as of the end of the work day on Monday.
