Bengals waive linebacker Brady Sheldon

CINCINNATI — The Bengals waived linebacker Brady Sheldon, offensive tackle O'Shea Dugas and defensive end Bryce Sterk

Sheldon appeared in one game for Cincinnati in 2019 and was competing in a suddenly deep linebacker room.  

The 27-year-old played his college ball at Ferris State and has spent time with the Raiders and Packers. He appeared in two games for the Raiders during the 2017 season. 

Sheldon did have some 'wow' moments in camp. He beat right tackle Bobby Hart in one-on-one pass rushing drills a few times, but it was always going to be an uphill battle for him to make the team or the practice squad. 

Sheldon beat Hart around the 48 second mark in the video below.

The Bengals claimed Bryce Sterk last month after he was released by the Dolphins. 

Sterk, a rookie from Montana State University, signed with Miami as an undrafted free agent in April. He had 65 tackles last season (20 for loss) and 15 sacks.

The Dolphins tried to convert him to tight end. The Bengals put him back at defensive end, which is where he played in college. 

Dugas, a second-year player out of Louisiana Tech, signed with the Bengals as a college free agent in 2019. He spent all of last season on the injured reserve list with a knee injury.

The Bengals will make more cuts between now and Saturday's deadline as they trim their roster to 53 players.
