The Bengals have released safety George Iloka.
Iloka is due $5.3 million in salary and roster bonuses this season, and it appears GM & Cincinnati local playhouse Scrooge Mike Brown would prefer to pay their second-round rookie Jesse Bates instead.
Iloka has his own sanguine outlook:
Break out the Vitamin-D SADS lamps, because Brandon Marshall has signed a one-year deal to play for the Seahawks.
The idea seems to be to use him in goal line situations where his size could help block out defenders or help him reign in short passes for scores.
This was dumped late-Friday like so-much bad news, but the Jags have locked up Blake Bortles for three more years.
Three years at $54 million, with $26 million of that guaranteed.
He will make $20 million this year.
He could make a maximum of $66.5 million with all incentives
