CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Bengals terminated the contracts of veteran defensive end Robert Geathers and wide receiver Greg Little on Friday.

Geathers was drafted by the Bengals in 2004 and has played all 11 seasons in Cincinnati. Geathers played more regular season games (152) than any other player on the Bengals' current roster and led the team in sacks twice in his career.

“Robert has been with us for all my seasons except the first one,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “He has been a team leader as well as a productive player. He's an incredible teammate and true professional, a big part of the winning seasons we've achieved. If Robert elects to pursue an opportunity with another NFL team, the timing of this will allow him the best possible chance at that.”

Greg Little played just six games with the Bengals last year. He finished with six receptions for 69 yards.
