The Bengals today have agreed to trade QB Ryan Finley to the Houston Texans and terminated the contracts of DT Geno Atkins and OT Bobby Hart.
*Finley, a third-year player out of North Carolina State, originally was a fourth-round pick of the Bengals in 2019.
*Atkins, a 12th-year player out of the University of Georgia, originally was a fourth-round pick of the Bengals in 2010. In his 11 seasons in Cincinnati, Atkins compiled 75.5 sacks, third-most in team history and more than double the amount of the next-highest DT. Additionally, his eight Pro Bowl selections are the most ever by a Bengals defensive player, and second-most in team history overall.
*Hart, a seventh-year player out of Florida State University, joined the Bengals in 2018 after spending his first three seasons ('15-17) with the N.Y. Giants.
