The Bengals felt comfortable releasing Travelle Wharton because Clint Boling has established himself as their starting left guard.
Boling, 24, replaced an injured Wharton at left guard last season and graded out as a top-11 guard in the entire league, per Pro Football Focus. Signed cheaply through 2014, Boling has proven to be a steal in the 2011 fourth round.

Bengals rookie RG Clint Boling was benched after one series in Sunday's loss to San Francisco.
The Bengals' opening drive was actually one of the their best of the day. Cedric Benson was able to rush five times for 15 yards, with all five attempts coming on the right side. Boling was replaced by Mike McGlynn. A fourth-round pick, Boling was starting his third straight game in place of a suspended Bobbie Williams. He could be shifted back to his natural position of tackle once Williams returns in Week 5.

Rookie Clint Boling will be the starting right guard in the Bengals' Week 1 game against the Browns.
"Boling is good. He's really smart," insisted OL coach Paul Alexander. "We saw this on the horizon. He's worked a lot with the ones." Boling played mostly tackle at Georgia, but has guard arm length at 33 1/4". He could hold his own in protection, but run blocking may be a different story right off the bat.
