Bengals cut starting safety Iloka

Released safety George Iloka could be poor-man's Chancellor for Cowboys

Released safety George Iloka could be poor-man's Chancellor for Cowboys

It's safe to presume George Iloka didn't think the Cincinnati Bengals would be cutting him Sunday.

With Iloka gone, rookie Jesse Bates - a 2018 second-round pick out of Wake Forest - has the edge for the starting free safety job.

Iloka, a longtime starter at safety for the Bengals, was a surprise cut a day removed from a preseason win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Afghanistan Announces Ceasefire With Taliban To Mark Eid Holiday
In June this year, Ghani announced an unconditional ceasefire with the Taliban for about two weeks. ISIS has not been a party to ceasefire talks.

Iloka was two years into a five-year, $30-million deal he inked ahead of the 2016 season. Iloka has started 76 of the 83 games in which he has played since being taken by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2012 National Football League draft. He received contract offers from the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings, but chose to stay in Cincinnati.

In 16 outings a year ago, Iloka posted a career-high 80 tackles along with one interception.
