It appears Cincinnati has started the process of trimming their roster ahead of this weekend and Sheldon is one of the first names to go.
The Bengals confirmed the move and also announced they have waived OT O’Shea Dugas and DE Bryce Sterk.
Roster Update: We've waived three players — OT O’Shea Dugas, LB Brady Sheldon and DE Bryce Sterk.

Sheldon, 27, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Ferris State back in 2017. He lasted just over a year in Oakland before being claimed off waivers by the Browns in 2018.
The Packers would later sign Sheldon to their practice squad and bring him back on a futures contract for the 2019 season. However, he was once again cut loose coming out of the preseason. He caught on with the Bengals practice squad in November before being promoted to the active roster.
Sheldon has appeared in three NFL games in his career but has yet to record a statistic.
