Week In Review: Interesting Scenario For The Cincinnati Bengals No. 2 Wide Receiver

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis sees it as much as we do. When asked about who the Bengals No. 2 wide receiver will be next season, his talking point responses were largely expected. It's an open competition. And by open, we mean wide open. Right now Armon Binns and Brandon Tate are your leading candidates if the season began today. Since there's four months until that happens, with OTAs and Training Camp approaching, the rookies in Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu will fight for the position.

Lewis was asked earlier this week about the No. 2 receiver spot during an appearance on NFL Network's Total Access.

"If we went out there and played tomorrow it’d probably be between Brandon Tate and Armon Binns – two guys that have been with us and know what to do. We’ve got Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones who are really competing hard, will compete hard for those spots. And then a couple of undrafted players who came in here and played very well this last weekend."

Our own Joe Goodberry brings up a different idea. What about a receiver by committee scenario?

Including the unsigned Sanu, the Cincinnati Bengals have 12 wide receivers on the roster.
