While most NFL teams are looking to add players via free agency, Cincinnati Bengals opted to clean the house. The team announced on Wednesday that they have released cornerback B.W. Webb and guard John Miller.
One of the reasons why Webb is out of town is reportedly Bengals’ intention to bring in Minnesota Vikings’ Trae Waynes. According to ESPN, Cincinnati has a deal in place with Waynes, who is a free agent, and will ink the 27-year-old to a three-year, $42 million deal.
Webb, who is known as a journeyman in the NFL, joined Bengals in 2019 on a three-year contract worth $10.5 million. He made a total of 37 tackles in 12 starts last season, adding one interception.
Miller was also a free agency addition for the Bengals in 2019, receiving a generous three-year, $16.5 million contract. The 26-year-old, however, didn’t justify his price tag as he blended into the Bengals’ struggling offensive line.
As part of their offseason moves, Cincinnati Bengals recently also released tackle Cordy Glenn while placing a franchise tag on Pro Bowl wideout AJ Green. The team also re-signed corner Tony Brown to a one-year extension.
