GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - The Bengals released defensive end Antwan
Odom, who's been hurt for most of the past two years, and placed
quarterback Carson Palmer on a reserve list of players who hadn't
reported to training camp on Friday.
Odom missed the last 10 games of the 2009 season with a torn
Achilles' tendon. He started only three games last season because
of a wrist injury and a suspension for using a performance
Palmer has told the team he'll retire if he's not traded. He has
four years left on his deal.
The Bengals also said that cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones and
linebacker Keith Rivers aren't able to practice because of
injuries. Jones is coming off neck surgery, while Rivers had wrist
surgery in the offseason.
