Report: Bengals Prepared to Release WR Antonio Bryant

Newsday's Bob Glauber reports the Cincinnati Bengals are prepared to release wide receiver Antonio Bryant.

Signed to a four-year, $28 million contract in March, a left knee injury has kept Bryant on the sidelines throughout training camp. The same knee limited Bryant to 13 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009.

Bryant has already received $7.7 in signing and roster bonuses, and another $525,000 of his contract is guaranteed.

Between Chad Ochocinco, Terrell Owens, Jordan Shipley, Jerome Simpson, Andre Caldwell, and Quan Cosby, as well as first-round tight end Jermaine Gresham and the team's ground game, they can afford--from a football perspective, anyway--to move on without Bryant. Whether Bengals ownership is eager to eat $8.25 million on a player who never played a down for the team is another story.
