I doubt that it's true. The Bengals could have cut him a long time ago. Why invest all this time and then decide to cut him because he had to handle his grandmother's funeral.

Just don't see it happening.

if its true that is pretty sad.. I know you should be at VOLUNTARY practice, but if the person who raised you died, you should be given time to grief.

Seems like a really dumb move for the front office and coaches. If he is cut, I would think that there has to be a better reason than missing a voluntary workout for the death of a close family member.

They have to understand the situation. If they cut him they must know something we don't. Like he relapsed and isn't taking the death of his grandmother well. I was hoping he would have been back late last week.

i am immediately calling BS on this one. watch the league source be mortensen.

yea, we hold on to him for 2 years now while continually getting blasted for having bad character guys, yet we cut him because he was with family after his grandmothers funeral. almost laughable.

Agreed.. there has to be more to the story than him missing OTA's... There is no way we cut a guy who we have kept around for this long and because the death of a very close family member missed OTA's.. It would be a big mistep by the front office to have go against the Collective bargaining agreement for something like this when they could very easily just cut him in june as a cap move or however they want to shake it..

Wow. I just popped over to pft and saw that as the lead headline...I sure hope it's not true.

Like others have posted, it would make no sense to hold onto a guy for two years and then cut him right after his grandmother passed away. Especially for not making it to a "voluntary workout." Talk about heartless.

I'm bewildered at this notion, will just have to wait and see if anything unfolds.

ESPN is reporting that the front office called his agent this morning and told him Odell will be released today. The reporter got that straight from the agent.

they're jsut burning a bridge if this is true. Odell can file a grievance and win since the workouts were non voluntary.
