Bengals part ways with DT Thompson, two others

Aug 21, 2017 - 12:48 AM The Cincinnati Bengals terminated the contract of veteran defensive tackle Brandon Thompson on Sunday.

A day after the Bengals' 30-12 preseason loss to the Chiefs, the team also cut two undrafted rookies, running back Boom Williams and wide receiver Karel Hamilton.

Thompson, 27, was the Bengals' third-round pick out of Syracuse in 2012. He missed the entire 2016 season recovering from the torn ACL he suffered in the 2015 season finale.

Thompson played in three games as a rookie and then appeared in 27 games (seven starts) in 2013 and 2014. He played in nine games in 2015 before the injury. Thompson recorded 53 career tackles and three sacks with the Bengals.

Hamilton and Williams will have to clear waivers before being able to sign as free agents.
