George Iloka recorded one solo tackle and one assisted tackle in the Minnesota Vikings' Week 7 win over the New York Jets.
Iloka could have strengthened his case to keep the starting job once Andrew Sendejo returns, but didn't take advantage. We'll see what Week 8 brings for these two players.
George Iloka took full advantage of the additional playing time on Sunday leading the team with eight tackles, seven of those being solo.
Iloka was expected to start for the injured Andrew Sendejo. If Sendejo misses any more games, Iloka would be an excellent filler for IDP owners in need of a safety. For now, deep IDP leagues should consider picking up Iloka.
George Iloka has signed a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
Iloka was recently released by the Bengals. He's expected to be a third safety for the team, a luxury given the depth they already have in the secondary. As such, Iloka loses IDP value given a lack of expected playing time.
The Cincinnati Bengals released starting strong safety George Iloka.
Iloka, a fifth-round pick in 2012, started 76 of 82 possible games over the past five seasons. The former Bengal was due $5.3M in salary and bonuses this year. Releasing Iloka elevates Jessie Bates to starter.
The Cincinatti Bengals re-signed DB George Iloka to a five-year, $30 million contract with $18 million guaranteed over the first three years according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
George Iloka was expected to depart via free agency, but the Bengals made sure that didn't happen by to re-signing the ball-hawking safety on Wendesday. Iloka finished 2015 with 47 total tackles, one interception and four passes defended in 12 games. Cincinnati is expected to lose CB Adam Jones on the open market and could make another acquisition to sure up their secondary.
