Bengals release center Kyle Cook

Apparently, we weren’t the only ones who thought center was the weakest link on the offensive line.

The Cincinnati Bengals, today, announced that they had released center Kyle Cook. The six-year veteran has spent his entire career in Cincinnati and saved us from the disaster that was Eric Ghiaciuc at center.

Cook started 68 games in his career with the Bengals, including every game from 2009-11 and all 17 contests last season but as the team looks to continue its climb up the AFC ranks, some changes were needed.

“KYle has been a great Bengal, a tough guy and an excellent leader,” offensive line coach Paul Alexander told the team website. “In addition to being a good player, he showed great ability to coordinate things and the line of scrimmage.”

Bengals.com indicates that Mike Pollack has the inside track to win the job. Pollack has never played center in the NFL but it was his position in college.
