CINCINNATI (AP) -Troubled linebacker Odell Thurman has been released by the Cincinnati Bengals, one month after he was reinstated by the NFL from a two-year suspension.
The Bengals said Monday that Thurman wasn't meeting expectations. The Bengals are holding voluntary workouts in preparation for the team's mandatory minicamp next month.
The move comes one month after the Bengals released receiver Chris Henry following his fifth arrest.
Thurman was suspended for the 2006 season by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after he skipped a drug test and was arrested for drunken driving. The suspension was extended through the 2007 season.
