Safety (4)

Reggie Nelson, George Iloka, Shawn Williams, Jeromy Miles

Cut: Taylor Mays

This is a tough one. Outside of Nelson, I was not impressed with any of the other 4 – so unimpressed that I wonder if Crocker won’t get a call after before the season starts. I don’t see the point in keeping Mays. He has been given opportunity after opportunity and done nothing but disappoint. I think it is time for the Bengals to cut ties and move on.

Miles is a special teams stud, so I see him staying over Mays, and Williams was a 3rd round pick this year, so he has more upside than Mays at this point. At this point you know what you get from Mays (and it isn’t good), so let’s see what the rookie can give the Bengals. Iloka starts more so by default than anything else.
