Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap are currently not happy with their playing time in Cincinnati according to Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer. The two former anchors of the defense are now essentially third-down players.
This is a bit confusing as both are former Pro Bowl selections, with Atkins being selected last season. He did miss the first four games of the season due to a shoulder injury. Dunlap started the first four games of the season but then was told he would serve more of a backup role.
Neither player is too happy with the Bengals, but don’t expect either to be traded before the November 3rd trade deadline. Cincinnati would save a little over $20 million if they release the veteran duo in the offseason before June 1st.
