Caplan tweeted on Wednesday:
This may be connected to Moch reportedly being suspended for four games in May for allegedly using a banned substance.

Bengals LB Dontay Moch, a 2011 3rd round pick, has been suspended 4 games for using a banned substance, pending appeal.— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) May 20, 2012
Moch, a third-round pick in 2011, suffered a broken foot in the opening preseason game against the Detroit Lions last season. He returned to full practice in October, but was listed as inactive for the sixth game of the regular season. He didn't play the rest of the season.
The Bengals certainly can't be happy with Moch, who hasn't lived up to the Bengals' impressive draft class from last year.
Green had 65 receptions for over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in his rookie campaign. Dalton passed for nearly 3,400 yards and 20 touchdowns to 13 interceptions, leading the Bengals to the playoffs.
The Bengals took a big step last season, but Moch wasn't a part of it. The third-round pick still has time to make it up to Cincinnati, but he's certainly off to a poor start in his NFL career. For a player who racked up 64 tackles, 8.5 sacks and one forced fumble in his final season at Nevada, he certainly isn't living up to his potential.
