Bengals Release Center B.J. Finney, Create Extra Cap Space Ahead of Free Agency

Cincinnati acquired Finney from Seattle as part of the Carlos Dunlap trade

The Bengals released veteran center B.J. Finney on Friday morning. The sixth-year veteran appeared in one game for Cincinnati in 2020. 

This move isn't a surprise. The Bengals save $3.275 million in cap space for the 2021 season before the new league year starts. 

Cincinnati acquired Finney in October in the trade that sent Carlos Dunlap to Seattle.

The Bengals are expected to have anywhere from $43-$48 million in cap space. They could still move on from veterans like Bobby Hart and Geno Atkins to create even more room. 

The salary cap for all 32 teams is expected to be anywhere from $180-$185 million. 

This is just the start of what should be a busy few weeks for the Bengals and the rest of the NFL. 

Free agency begins on March 17 at 4 p.m. ET. Teams can begin negotiating with free agents on March 15.
