    Levi Jones released!

    From CNNSI

    CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Bengals have parted ways with Levi Jones, terminating the contract of their starting offensive tackle and former first-round pick.

    The move Wednesday was expected. He has been bothered by knee and leg problems in recent years.

    Cincinnati took tackle Andre Smith of Alabama with the sixth overall pick in last month's draft.

    Jones' agent, Ken Zuckerman, had said the Bengals told him in March they planned to trade or release him.

    The Bengals selected Jones 10th overall in 2002. He played in 94 games for Cincinnati, missing final six games last season because of an injury.

    He got a six-year extension before the 2006 season, which was the last on his previous contract. He was paid $21 million over the first three years of the deal.

    Sad end to a pretty good run with the Bengals. He was awesome before he got injured a couple years back. Then he got misdiagnosed by the Bengals and it's completely ruined his career. It's amazing how bad the Bengals medical staff is. Levi, Chris Perry, and others have really had their careers altered due to poor decisions by that staff.

    I wish Levi well. It's too bad he's not here and healthy because this team could really use another solid offensive lineman.
