Should the Bengals add a wide receiver in free agency

Trevor Ruszkowksi-USA TODAY Spor

With the talent at the wide receiver position in free agency, would it make sense for the Bengals to bring in a vet at the position?

At times it looked like the Bengals were set at the wide out position. Marvin Jones stepped up and was a huge contributor in some games. Even with his spot as the Bengals number two receiver, he only topped 100yds receiving once. His output in other games left much to be desired:

Week Opponent Catches Yards
1 Bears 1 7
2 Steelers 3 35
3 Packers 3 38
5 Patriots 2 39
10 Ravens 1 2
11 Browns 1 9
13 Chargers 2 12

Jones was not used correctly in this offense to start the season. As it progressed we saw the Bengals lean a little bit more on Jones and he answered at times in big moments. The case may be that the Bengals are fine with the players on the roster as wide outs. The question should still be asked if there is someone better to bring in.

I understand there are more pressing needs for the organization, I also know that the Bengals rarely make a splash in free agency so this is probably a long shot, but for the sake of argument, here is the list of current WR free agents.

If the Bengals were to make a move to add someone to come in and compete for the spot opposite A.J. Green, who on this list would make sense?
