Bengals cut two

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals released defensive end Robert Geathers — one of Cincinnati’s most tenured players — and receiver Greg Little on Friday.

Geathers played 11 seasons with Cincinnati, a span of 152 career games that ranks third in franchise history for a defensive lineman. Only Tim Krumrie (188) and Eddie Edwards (170) have played in more games for the Bengals. Geathers, a fourth-round pick in 2004, had 21 tackles, one sack and one interception last season.

The Bengals signed Little as a free agent from Cleveland in October, when injuries depleted the group of receivers. He played in six games for Cincinnati, getting six catches for 69 yards. He didn’t have a reception during the Bengals’ playoff loss at Indianapolis.
