The NFL is a big-time business and players are cut and regularly released every season as teams try to find that winning formula to win a championship.

Former Clemson defensive tackle DeShawn Williams was another roster casualty as he was among 23 players released by the Cincinnati Bengals over the weekend to get them down to their 53-man squad.

It's very plausible that the Bengals will keep Williams and place him on their practice squad shortly.

Williams played four games with the Bengals last season and had a tackle and half of a sack. He spent his rookie season on the practice squad with the Bengals in 2015 after being an undrafted free agent out of Clemson.

The talented Daniel (HS) product had 161 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, 24 quarterback pressures, four pass breakups, one recovered fumble and two blocked kicks in 1,235 snaps over 53 games (17 starts) at Clemson.
