  Bengals | Alex Erickson may not make team    Fri Jul 17, 05:33 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson could be on the roster bubble during training camp since the team added WRs Tee Higgins and Scotty Washington this offseason. The team would save $1.9 million in salary cap space if Erickson were released.

Footballguys view: Erickson contributes on special teams and has had a role on offense at times, but if A.J. Green and John Ross are healthy, he could be out of a roster spot in a numbers crunch.
