Was asked to take a pay cut 2 weeks into free agency

Cincinnati Bengals
Giovani Bernard asked for his release and the #Bengals granted it, source says. The team had asked him to take a pay cut two weeks into free agency, which hurt his chances of landing elsewhere. But he's expected to find a new gig soon. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gio has played for the Bengals since being drafted in 2013. He's largely played behind Joe Mixon the last three seasons which has limited his fantasy value. He'll likely land a backup gig somewhere else but will struggle to have value on a weekly basis. The Bengals have Trayveon Williams and Samaje Perine behind Mixon heading into the draft.
