    Bengals Cut Levi Jones

    The Cincinnati Bengals have released veteran left tackle Levi Jones. The team announced the move earlier today.

    Jones was a first-round pick in 2002, and he quickly became a fixture on the left side of the line.

    Signed through 2012, Jones was due to earn a base salary of $3 million this year.

            Between his injuries, general suckiness and the cap hit... It makes sense. Since the end of the season I figured he would be gone. He also was unhappy the last 2 years or so, it makes sense.

                I know the 49ers and Bills have shown interest at some point...

                He was an absolute stud leading up to 2006. He hurt his knee and just hasn't been the same since...

                  He seems like he was suffering from a mental block post-injury. Never really quite got over it and became gun shy. He still has some talent left if a new coach can get him over the mental stuff.

                    I don't know if my numbers were correct, but I calculated only a $650K or so savings in terms of the cap. Which made me think it wouldn't be worth it to cut Jones.

                    But I suppose the Bengals felt now was the time to cut ties with him.

                      Nope it saves us 3 million and it is only 500,000 cap hit

                      And i am glad he is gone now he has been crappy since getting his contract extension

                        That is an interesting development. Who plays opposite Smith now? Smith at LT must be a lock now.

                            Thanks. So Smith gets penciled in as the starting RT but you're likely looking at an open competition for the LT spot, right?


                            I just hope they get it together well enough to keep Carson in the game. It seems we can't get a full season without one of the top flight QBs getting broken.
