Derrick Harvey’s disappointing NFL career might have reached its conclusion.
The Cincinnati Bengals cut ties with the former first-round draft pick Sunday, less than four months after signing Harvey to a one-year deal. The team ate a $60,000 signing bonus.
The Jacksonville Jaguars traded up 18 spots to select Harvey No. 8 overall in the 2008 NFL Draft, but he never became the edge rusher the team envisioned. He managed just eight sacks and 70 tackles in three seasons before being released last July.
Harvey is the latest 2008 draft bust to pop up in the headlines.
Jeff Otah, the 18th overall draft pick, was released by the Carolina Panthers last week after a failed physical blocked a trade to the New York Jets. On Sunday, Devin Thomas, the 34th overall pick of the Washington Redskins,announced his retirement after collecting 43 career receptions and entering this year’s training camp with the Chicago Bears.

Defensive end Derrick Harvey, who was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2008 draft, was released by the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The Bengals had signed Harvey to a one-year contract in the offseason, and by releasing him, the Bengals wasted the $60,000 signing bonus they gave Harvey.

Now that the Bengals are deeply into training camp and have their first preseason game in a few days, I thought it made sense to take a look at some of the storylines to watch in the coming weeks. Here they are:
1. How will Andy Dalton and A.J. Green perform in their second seasons? Dalton and Green were suprisingly successful in their first year, but they will need continued improvement...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals have released defensive end Derrick Harvey, who signed as a free agent last March.
Harvey played his first three seasons with Jacksonville, then two with Denver before leaving as an unrestricted free agent. The Bengals hoped he would give them more depth on the line.
He was released one week into training camp.

I’ve been saying this all off-season, someone needs to give T.O. a job so guys like Skip Bayless can keep there’s interesting and maybe off of Tebow or LeBron for a little while. Honestly, I miss the days of Owens’ outlandish swagger and confidence. He’s always been an exciting player and one hell of an athlete. I’d say 90% of teams could use a veteran wideout, and...
Terrell Owens did some surprising and impressing Monday during his workout for the Seattle Seahwawks. He was so impressive that according to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Terrell Owens and the Seahawks are already engaged in contract negotiations and expected to complete a deal soon. The 38-year old who is coming off of surgery for a torn ACL reportedly ran a blazing 4.45 second 40-yard...
Ex-Cowboys, 49ers, Bengals, and Eagles WR Terrell Owens agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday.
The 38-yrear-old Owens has not played in the NFL since 2010, when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Owens suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament the following April.
More stylish than the new Seahawks uniforms
Terrell Owens has been out of the NFL since 2010, but that doesn’t mean his exploits still haven’t garnered widespread attention at every opportunity. In just the last few months, those antics – whether a stint in the Indoor Football League or an appearance on Dr. Phil – have still been covered in varying degrees of breathlessness...

On Monday, Seattle Seahawks and veteran wide receiver Terrell Owens agreed to a one-year deal.
Owens, 38, landed a tryout with the Seahawks Monday morning, and reportedly posted a 40 time of 4.45 seconds. He has not played in the NFL since 2010, and suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2011.
Seattle cut receiver Antonio Bryant and signed Braylon Edwards last week.
Stop the presses: Terrell Owens‘ search for a new home has mercifully ended.
According to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com, the Seahawks agreed to terms with Owens on a one-year contract.
Financial details aren’t available — probably because Owens has yet to put pen to paper — though I can’t imagine the deal being worth much more than the veteran’s minimum.
