Cincinnati Bengals released Trevor Robinson

Robinson helped stabilize a center position that desperately needed help in 2012 with Kyle Cook injured and Jeff Faine struggling.

The Cincinnati Bengals have released (most likely waived), center Trevor Robinson, according to Pro Football Talk. Robinson signed as a college free agent on May 4, 2012 and spent most of the previous two seasons on the team's 53-man roster.

When Cincinnati was having significant issues at center in 2012 -- Kyle Cook was dealing with a high ankle sprain and Jeff Faine was just awful -- Robinson helped stabilize the position... if not enhanced it. His performances were noteworthy enough that when Cook returned late in the season, fans clamored for Robinson.

Interestingly enough, the Bengals have no centers from last year's squad. Former starting center Kyle Cook was released in March and recently announced his retirement. Cincinnati used their fourth-round pick to snag UNC center Russell Bodine, who was named as the team's starting center a few weeks ago by Paul Alexander.

Robinson departs having played 19 games with the Bengals, seven of which were starts.
