Anthony Zettel’s tenure in Cincinnati didn’t last a week.

The Bengals released the defensive end on Monday. Zettel was signed by the club as a free agent on Oct. 17.

Zettel appeared in the Bengals’ Week 7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He had three pressures on 18 pass-rush attempts.

Pro Football Focus gave him the highest Week 7 grade for a Cincinnati defender.
