The Bengals’ new-look defense is cutting a player from their 2019 squad.

Per NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Bengals are releasing cornerback Torry McTyer.

A fourth-year player, McTyer was originally signed as a college free agent signee by the Miami Dolphins in 2017. He stayed with Miami until just before the 2019 regular season began when he was waived during final cuts. The Kansas City Chiefs signed him onto their practice squad days later until the Bengals signed as free agent after Week 3 of the regular season. McTyer re-signed with Bengals as an unrestricted free agent this offseason after declining to tender him as a restricted free agent.

McTyer was getting plenty of reps this training camp due to the injury of Trae Waynes and the temporary absence of Mackensie Alexander. He can still re-join the team on its practice squad as one of their six vested veterans they’re allowed to sign there, but if not, this looks like McTyer’s final chapter in Cincinnati.
