CINCY SAYS "SEE YA" TO SAM

The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that defensive tackle Sam Adams has been released.

Adams was signed 13 months ago to beef up the middle of a defensive line that has been susceptible to the run. But the defense generally took a step backward in 2006.

The move saves only $700,000 or so in 2007 cap space. The motivation is believed to be a desire to go younger at the position. On Monday, the Bengals signed defensive tackle Kenderick Allen, and they drafted defensive tackle Matt Toeaina in the sixth round of last month's draft.

Domata Peko will likely replace Adams in the starting lineup.

"Releasing Sam is a very difficult decision," coach Marvin Lewis said. "But the timing is such that it provides Sam the opportunity to obtain a roster spot with another team. Sam has had an outstanding NFL career, and we wish him and his family the very best."

Adams started every game in 2006, his only season with the Bengals. He made 10 tackles, a career low. He also had two sacks. He has played for the Seahawks, Raiders, Ravens, and Bills. His NFL career started in 1994, in Seattle.

Old and descending.

No chance in hell on a team that's loaded at DT.

I think he would be a FANTASTIC addition, after all, who would know better than a long time vet how to maintain all of our equipment???

Make it happen Carl.

No thanks. Need to focus in FA for secondary and Oline help. Perhaps maybe another WR as well. Can't have too many of them.

You're barking up the wrong tree. That ship has sailed.

Pick a metaphor, any metaphor.

Two years ago we'd be banging down Carl's door if it meant we'd put Sam Adams on this team.

Now we're all "meh" about him.

Feels good. PBJ

Talk about disappointing.

The Bengals thought they were getting an anchor and all they got was a Ryan Sims doughboy.

It was funny hearing analysts even after the season mention how he solidified the DT spot for them, totally disregarding his recent play.
