CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Bengals announced Wednesday they released Giovani Bernard.
A ninth-year player out of the University of North Carolina, Bernard originally was a second-round draft pick of the Bengals in 2013, the team said in a prepared statement.
He played in 115 games (30 starts) over his eight seasons in Cincinnati, and rushed for 3,697 yards and 22 TDs on 921 carries.
Bernard also was a significant contributor in the passing game, as his 342 career receptions are the most by a running back in Bengals history, and his 2,867 receiving yards are second-most.
