Luigs in, Castille out

By nate

The Bengals agreed to terms with center Jonathan Luigs yesterday, leaving only four rookies unsigned heading into next week’s camp. According to Adam Caplan of Luigs’ deal is worth $2.256 million with a $509,500 signing bonus.

To make room, the Bengals cut cornerback Simeon Castille. The move leaves David Jones, Geoff Pope and rookie Morgan Trent competing for the nickel corner position, which was a trouble spot last year. In my opinion, the team should add a veteran to compete for the third corner position, especially considering the injury history of Jonathan Joseph. Otherwise, the spot could be an Achilles heel on an improving defense.

Carson Palmer says his elbow is fine and Chris Henry shows flashes of Randy Moss. Hopefully, he’s referring to on-field perfomance and not a tendency to shake a certain body part at fines.
