Cutdown day is finally here, and many NFL players as we speak are getting the news that they have been cut, they have been designated to their respective teams’ practice squad, or their NFL dreams are being realized as they’re making it onto the active 53-man roster and will be eligible to play on NFL Sundays. Here’s are final projections on how the Bengals 53-man roster will look like by day’s end:


Andy Dalton, Bruce Gradkowski

Running backs:

BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Bernard Scott, Brian Leonard, Cedric Peerman


Chris Pressley

Tight Ends:

Jermaine Gresham, Donald Lee, Orson Charles

Wide Receivers:

A.J. GreenArmon BinnsBrandon Tate, Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu Andrew Hawkins

Offensive Tackles:

Andrew Whitworth, Andre Smith, Anthony Collins, Dennis Roland


Clint Boling, Kevin Zeitler


Kyle Cook, Jeff Faine, Trevor Robinson

Defensive Ends:

Jamaal AndersonRobert Geathers, Michael Johnson, Carlos Dunlap


Geno Atkins, Domata Peko, Devon Still, Brandon Thompson


Rey Maualuga, Manny Lawson, Thomas Howard, Vontaze Burfict, Dan Skuta, Roddrick Muckelroy, Vincent Rey


Leon Hall, Nate Clements, Terence Newman, Dre Kirkpatrick, Adam Jones, CB Jason Allen


Reggie Nelson, Taylor Mays, Jeromy Miles, George Iloka

Punter: Kevin Huber

Kicker: Mike Nugent

Long snapper: Clark Harris

Last 4 In: TE Orson Charles, DE DeQuin Evans, S George Iloka, LB Vincent Rey

First 4 out: DE DeQuin Evans, WR Ryan Whalen, OG Otis Hudson, C Reggie Stephens

Practice Squad: , DE DeQuin Evans, WR Ryan Whalen, QB Zac Robinson, S Tony Dye, LB Emmanuel Lamur, FB Pat Devlin, and RB/FB Jourdan Brooks, and WR Justin Hilton

PUP: Pat Sims

Suspended First 4 Games: DE/OLB Dontay Moch

Next two out to make room for their return: OT Dennis Roland & LB Vincent Rey (If Bengals wish to keep Sims, but he’s more likely to be let go)

Potential waiver wire move: Bengals trade LB Vincent Rey to Saints for RB Chris Ivory, then cut Brian Leonard and keep DE DeQuin Evans. The Saints are reportedly working the phones hard to find help at linebacker, and their biggest trade chip is 4th-string RB Chris Ivory, who has lit up the preseason in each of his three years in the NFL.
