BenJarvus Green-Ellis shown the door by Bengals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:22 pm ET) As many expected, the Bengals have cut veteran running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis. The performance of rookie Jeremy Hill in the preseason was a motivating factor in forcing Green-Ellis out.

Green-Ellis was the team's featured back in 2013, which he finished with a meager 3.4 YPC average on 220 carries, though he did score seven touchdowns.

Giovani Bernard has already been pegged as the top back for Cincinnati this season with Hill in line for significant work.
