Bengals cut WR Kashif Moore to get to 75


 

 

The Bengals have released former University of Connecticut wide receiver Kashif Moore in order to get their roster down to the mandated 75-man limit. Moore was  signed in the offseason after going undrafted, and was mostly used as an extra body in practice. He accounted for only one reception for 5 yards in three preseason games. Moore accounted for 41 receptions for 604 yards receiving and five touchdowns during his final season in Connecticut.

With his release, the Bengals now have 9 wide receivers vying for whats likely to be 6 spots. The 3 players currentyl on the outside looking in are Justin Hilton, Ryan Whalen, and Videl Hazleton. None of those players are expected to make the final 53-man roster, but still have hopes of making it onto the 8-man practice squad. In the unfotunate case of an injury to one of the Bengals’ top-6 wideouts between now and Friday, that could also open up another spot for one of those players to sneak onto the team.
