Bengals Waive DE Khalid Kareem

The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Tuesday they have waived DE Khalid Kareem

The team had just brought Kareem back to the active roster after a stint on one of the injury lists, but it appears he’s not a big part of their plans at this time. 

Kareem, 24, was a two-year starter at Notre Dame where he was a team captain, before being selected in the fifth round of the draft by the Bengals in 2020. 

He was in the third year of a four-year rookie deal worth $3,649,474, which includes a signing bonus of $354,474.

In 2020, Kareem appeared in all 16 games for the Bengals, recording 19 total tackles and one sack.
