Former Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Antwan Odom, who is currently an unrestricted free agent, was reportedly shot in the leg in Mobile, Ala.

Odom, a second-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2004 from the University of Alabama, was shot early this morning, according to Jessica Taloney of WKRG Channel 5 in Mobile.

Odom was released by the Bengals just before the opening of training camp last month. It ended a three-year tenure after the Bengals signed him in 2008 to a $29.5 million contract. Odom never played a full season due to injuries that included an Achilles tendon tear in 2009, and also a wrist injury last year. He also was suspended for four games in 2010 for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing substances.
