Josh Tupou is not the lone Bengals player to opt out of this season.

The team announced that second-year offensive tackle Isaiah Prince has opted out and has been placed on the Reserve/Opt-Out list.

Like Tupou, Prince will not receive an accrued season as a result of opting out, but will be eligible for a stipend of $150,000 to be treated as a salary advance against his tolled contract.

In 2021, Prince’s contract will be reinstated. If he reports for all required activities in 2021, the opt-out will not become a breach of his 2020 contract, which will not subject him to discipline or forfeiture, will not void any bonuses or guarantees or have any other adverse consequences beyond those set forth herein.

Prince was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth-round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He appeared in four games with the Dolphins before he was waived in early December. The Bengals claimed him on waivers soon afterwards after placing Brandon Wilson on the Reserve/Injured list. He did not take a snap with the Bengals last year.

Prince had an outside chance at making the Week 1 roster this year but had a good chance at coming back onto the practice squad. We’ll see if the team keeps him around when he comes back in 2021.
