With Scott's release, the Bengals are down to 89 players. They wrapped up organized team activities on Tuesday.
It has been expected that the Bengals were going to make a cut or two at running back between now and the close of training camp, as they had seven (not including the fullbacks and H-backs) on the roster during this spring's practices. Veteran BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been among those most expected to get cut as Cincinnati begins turning over more duties to second-year back Giovani Bernard, and starts grooming rookie Jeremy Hill.
Noted for his speed, Scott was a post-draft addition who spent his college career at Ole Miss. In addition to playing in the backfield, he had worked out on special teams as a punt and kick returner.
According to ESPN Stats & Information, Scott's release gives the Bengals a cap savings of $418,666. The only guaranteed money Scott received when he signed May 13 was a $2,000 signing bonus.
