NEWS: #Bengals release DE Robert Geathers and WR Greg Little

Geathers has played his entire professional career for the Bengals and became a regular starter a defensive end in 2005, his second season in the NFL. With the Bengals, Geathers has been known for making sacks and returning recovered fumbles. Geathers has many family members who played football at the college or professional level; his uncle Jumpy Geathers played in the NFL from 1984 to 1996, and his father Robert Geathers Sr. was a 1981 draft pick. A younger brother Clifton Geathers has played in the NFL since 2010 and another brother Kwame Geathers plays for the San Diego Chargers.

Little caught 6 passes for 68 yards last year for the Bengals, and the team was able to save some money by releasing him.

The release of the two veterans saves the team roughly 3.745 million dollars.  745, 000 dollars is saved for Little and a little over 3 million is saved for Geathers.
