Bengals Release Thurman

May 19, 2008

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.
