Bengals waived/released WR Ryan Whalen, CB R.J. Stanford, DT Larry Black, S Isaiah Lewis and K Quinn Sharp.

A 2011 sixth-rounder, Whalen has kicked around the bottom rung of the Bengals' roster for three seasons, catching 11 passes across 17 games. Stanford appeared in 13 games for the Dolphins in 2013. He'll shop his wares as a special teamer.

Bengals WR Ryan Whalen led Cincinnati in Week 7 receiving with four catches for 31 yards.

Andy Dalton only threw for 105 as the passing game was shut down, so slot receiver Whalen came out on top of a putrid corps. The Bengals have an upcoming bye in Week 8, and Whalen won't be worth rostering in fantasy leagues.

Bengals WR Ryan Whalen (hamstring) returned to practice Monday.

Whalen missed two weeks of practice, imperiling his roster spot. A sixth-round pick last season, Whalen caught four passes for 27 yards in four games. He'll likely have to light it up in Cincinnati's final two preseason games to get back on the coaching staff's radar.

Bengals WR Ryan Whalen has missed the past two weeks of training camp with a hamstring injury.

The Bengals like Whalen's skill set as a backup receiver, but the team's website acknowledges that he's on the roster bubble. The top six wideouts right now are A.J. Green, Brandon Tate, Armon Binns, Andrew Hawkins, Mohamed Sanu, and Marvin Jones. They seem unlikely to carry seven receivers on the final 53.

The Cincinnati Enquirer believes Bengals WR Ryan Whalen is on the roster bubble.

It should go without saying after the 2011 sixth-rounder caught just four passes in four games as a rookie. Barring an exceptionally strong training camp, Whalen is likely gone.

Bengals agreed to terms with No. 167 overall pick WR Ryan Whalen on a four-year contract.

A possession receiver under Jim Harbaugh at Stanford, Whalen reportedly turned a few heads in player-organized workouts. We put even less stock in those reports than minicamp performances. Whalen is facing long odds to make the roster in Cincinnati's deep receiver corps.

Bengals selected Stanford WR Ryan Whalen with the No. 167 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Whalen goes 6-foot-1, 204 and was a possession receiver under Jim Harbaugh at Stanford, averaging just 10.7 yards per catch as a senior and earning honorable mention All-Pac 10 honors. A former walk-on, Whalen ran a 4.62 forty at the Combine. He probably isn't going to do much on offense in the NFL.
