It came to the shock of everyone, as Iloka had become a valued member of this franchise, not to mention a leader on this defense since earning a starting role in 2013.
Iloka was a fifth round draft pick for the Bengals in 2012 out of Boise State. He was entering his seventh NFL season in Cincinnati and has started every game for the last two years. The the only starts he’s missed since 2013 were four due to injury.
Iloka racked up 227 tackles, 32 passes defensed, nine interceptions and two forced fumbles in his time in Cincinnati.
This has big ramifications for the team going forward, so we have created a stream to help you keep track of everything related to the shocking move made with just two weeks until the regular season begins.
