FB Tyler Whaley is cut By the Bengals
In late April, the Cincinnati Bengals signed undrafted

While the terms were not disclosed, it is custom to give a player signed
to a multi-year deal a signing bonus.
However, today he was released by the team.

signed Whaley in part because the incumbent FB Jeremi Johnson had a history of
weight problems. The release of Whaley
was not unexpected. The FB is a
varnishing breed in the league as more teams are often using a single back in a
2 TE or 3 WR formation.
