Bengals release Antonio Bryant

The Cincinnati Bengals have released wide receiver Antonio Bryant, the team announced Sunday.

The Bengals signed Bryant to a four-year, $28 million contract in the offseason as a free agent. The deal reportedly included nearly $8 million in guaranteed money, which Bryant is to retain. The club initially chose to sign Bryant instead of fellow free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens, but later signed Owens as well.

Bryant becomes an unrestricted free agent. He has been plagued by a knee problem.

His departure leaves Owens to team with Chad Ochocinco at wide receiver in Cincinnati.

$8mil to play per preseason? I fear that this will set an unhealthy precedent...
