In the first major surprise of the day, the Bengals informed halfback Rudi Johnson that his contract has been terminated.

His agent, Peter Schaffer, confirmed that the Bengals notified him that his client will no longer be with the team. Johnson was in the fourth year of a five-year, $20.7 million contract. Hamstring problems bothered him this summer, and injuries have been a concern for the past couple years.

Johnson came to minicamp in incredible shape. He added muscle and lost body fat.

The release of Johnson gives Chris Perry the starting job. He was scheduled to make $3.65 million this season.

What a bunch of idiots. Is the bengals goal to be as bad as possible? No wonder they suck. Same ole, same ole in Cincinnati.

...why the heck hasn't Shaun Alexander landed on a team yet? I've been told time and time again that he would land with someone who needs a RB badly. Wouldn't Rudi and Shaun both be available on the market for Detroit? Seems weird.

Kudos Rudi!

Yeah, I can't believe that Shaun hasn't landed yet! I know he's had a rough go lately, but the guy is still a bad ass and with the right team I'm sure he could make some noise. The guy is a team player and fun to watch. I hope he gets somewhere soon.
