Bengals’ Geno Atkins Frustrated With Role
Cincinnati Bengals veteran defensive tackle Geno Atkins, and defensive end Carlos Dunlap, are frustrated with their current roles, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Tyler Dragon.
The news comes on the feels of the team starting Xavier Williams and defensive end Amani Bledsoe over both Atkins and Dunlap in their Week 6 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Atkins played just 18 snaps while Dunlap played 28.
Atkins is an eight-time Pro Bowler, and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2019. Dunlap has earned 2 career Pro Bowl selections.
While the Bengals have been reluctant to move their defensive stars, the trade deadline is approaching and Atkins and Dunlap could be some names to watch.
