Louis Murphy will visit the Cincinnati Bengals

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Former Giants receiver Louis Murphy is visiting the Bengals after the Bucs also showed interest in him.

The Cincinnati Bengals aren't wasting anytime in gauging their options at receiver now that Andrew Hawkins is with the Browns. As of now -- after A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu -- only Brandon Tate, Ryan Whalen, Dane Sanzebacher and Cobi Hamilton are the only receivers on the roster, and none of them has done much to show they're capable of even being a reliable No. 4 WR.

Some would argue Luis Murphy hasn't either, but that isn't stopping the bengals from bringing him in for a free agent visit:

As Rapoport said, Murphy is wrapping up a visit with the Bucs, and new Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is probably behind this visit happening.

Murphy caught a combined 75 passes during the 2009 and 2010 seasons with the Oakland Raiders. He had just 15 catches in 2011, and was traded to the Carolina Panthers Murphy, where he had 25 catches in 2012.

He signed with the New York Giants last year and caught just six passes, and is now back on the free agent market.
