CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals released safety Jimmy Wilson on Friday, a day before the NFL's mandatory roster cutdown.
The sixth-year veteran signed with Cincinnati on July 28 and got a chance to win a backup role. He was on the field for 71 percent of the Bengals' defensive plays against Indianapolis on Thursday night and had one tackle. The Colts won 13-10.
Wilson played four seasons with Miami, appearing in 60 games, including 21 starts. He was with San Diego last season and played in 13 games, starting six of them.
