Safety Myers Waived By Bengals
GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) _ Free safety Greg Myers, who injured his right knee during the Cincinnati Bengals’ preseason opener, was waived Friday.
Myers, 27, was given an undisclosed injury settlement. He hurt a patella tendon in the knee against Buffalo on Aug. 4.
He signed a two-year contract in March with the Bengals, who drafted him in the fifth round out of Colorado State in 1996.
Myers, from Steamboat Springs, Colo., started 34 of 58 regular-season games at free safety during the last four seasons. He was replaced as a starter by Cory Hall in the fifth game of last season.
He had 169 tackles and four interceptions during his Bengals career.
