CINCINNATI, OH -- The Cincinnati Bengals released defensive tackle Sam Adams, who joined the team as a free agent last season, and signed unrestricted free agent Kenderick Allen to a one-year contract on Monday.

The Bengals had brought in the 360-pound Adams to help their defense against the run, but finished 15th in the league on rush defense and 30th overall, allowing 355 yards a game.

Adams, a 14th-year player, joined the Bengals last season as an unrestricted free agent from Buffalo and started 16 games, with 25 tackles and two sacks.

"Releasing Sam is a very difficult decision, but the timing is such that it provides Sam the opportunity to obtain a roster spot with another team," said Bengals coach Marvin Lewis.

Allen, a fifth-year unrestricted free agent, was limited to two games with Green Bay last season, going on the injured-reserve list Oct. 2 with a foot injury.
