According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Bengals defensive end Antwan Odom is attempting a comeback in the NFL. Only heading into his age 31 season, Odom isn’t completely over the hill yet, but injuries forced him to play in just 6 games in 2009, 4 games in 2010, and left him without a contract in 2011. He also has a previous arrest. He’s supposedly healthy now and may get a few looks from teams as a pure flier. In his prime, he was a talented player who managed 8 sacks in 6 games in 2009 and also had an 8 sack season in 2007 with Tennessee, his last 16 game season. Following that season, he received a lucrative contract from the Bengals, paying him 29.5 million over 5 years with 11.5 million guaranteed, but that was the highlight of his career as his tenure in Cincinnati was injury riddled to say the least. So far, he has, not surprisingly, generated no known interest.

Cincinnati Bengals Training Camp Preview: Linebackers

Since the Bengals' defensive line got most of the attention for the team's defensive success in 2011 and while the secondary needed the most work in the offseason, the team's linebackers kind of flew, and are somewhat still remaining, under the radar.

Bengals Banter: Ranking Salaries For Bengals Cornerbacks

It's just common sense that the Cincinnati Bengals will likely release a cornerback or two from now until final cuts a week before the 2012 regular season launches.

Let's take a look at scheduled salaries Bengals cornerbacks are expected...
