The Cincinnati Bengals completed the cut-down process to comply with the NFL’s 53-player deadline on Tuesday.

Former starting guard Michael Jordan was the most notable cut as the Bengals trimmed the roster by 20-plus names to reach the 53-man limi.

The Bengals then announced the moves used to reach that 53-man roster.

Three players went to the IR lists:

  • OT Hakeem Adeniji

  • DE Wyatt Hubert

  • DE Joseph Ossai

Four veterans were cut and go right to free agency or re-sign:

  • DT Mike Daniels

  • TE Mason Schreck

  • DE Noah Spence

  • WR Trent Taylor

Twenty were waived and go on waivers:

  • LB Joe Bachie

  • DE Amani Bledsoe

  • CB Tony Brown

  • P Drue Chrisman

  • S Trayvon Henderson

  • LB Keandre Jones

  • G Michael Jordan

  • DT Kahlil McKenzie

  • TE Thaddeus Moss

  • HB Jacques Patrick

  • CB Antonio Phillips

  • CB Winston Rose

  • K Austin Seibert

  • QB Kyle Shurmur

  • G Keaton Sutherland

  • OT Gunnar Vogel

  • WR Scotty Washington

  • HB Pooka Williams Jr.

  • HB Trayveon Williams

  • DT Renell Wren

None of the cuts came as much of a shock for a team with a pretty well-established talent base at this point. A few surprises — such as Darius Hodge after his strong summer — squeaked onto the final 53.
