The Dearly Departed, Week 4

Our weekly look at how notable Bengals free agent losses and cuts are faring.

During free agency ’08, the Bengals lost three players — Landon Johnson, Madieu Williams and Justin Smith — and in their final cuts released fan favorites Rudi Johnson and Willie Anderson, as well as Deltha O’Neal and Ahmad Brooks. So, how did this years’ crop of ex-Bengals fare in week 4?

  • Williams, now a Viking, is still out with a neck injury. However, he has finally returned to practice.
  • Look for Big Willie tonight against the Steelers.
  • Landon had no stats in Carolina’s victory over Atlanta. He has 3 tackles on the season.
  • Rudi and Deltha were off this week; the Lions and Pats have a bye. For the season, Rudi has 99 yards rushing on 18 carries, 3 receptions for 48 yards, 1 TD and 1 fumble, and Deltha has 11 tackles.
  • Justin Smith had 7 tackles in the 49ers’ loss to New Orleans. For the year he has 22 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 FF and an INT. Ahmad was inactive again.
