Most Notable Bengals Roster Cuts – No. 2: Thaddeus Moss

It seemed pretty evident that Thaddeus Moss had done enough to earn the TE3 job on the Bengals’ roster. Well, rumors started floating around in the early afternoon that Moss didn’t make the team. He posted as such on his Instagram story (see tweet below).

Paul Dehner of The Athletic mentioned that the TE3 position came down to who could stand out more on special teams and Mitchell Wilcox has thrived in that role in the past. He also noted that the Bengals want Moss on their practice squad and he’ll get his shot if C.J. Uzomah or Drew Sample get banged up.

Moss previously played with Joe Burrow at LSU in 2019 and that was what got him a shot in Cincinnati. He played well during the preseason and caught the attention of the fans, so him not making the team hasn’t been a popular news piece amongst Bengals fans.

Hopefully, this isn’t the last we’ll see from Moss and he makes it onto the practice squad.
