Greg Little could reunite with the Bengals after they cut him earlier this offseason.

The Bengals announced earlier today wide receiver James Wright has been effectively lost for the year.

Now, they may already have a replacement lined up in the form of Greg Little, as NFL.com's Rand Getlin reports:

Little was signed by the Bengals midway through last season after a slew of injuries at wide receiver decimated the team. He went on to catch six passes for 69 yards last season before being cut this offseason. At this point, Little would likely be just a body for camp with several other more promising options on the roster.

Little was drafted in the second round of the 2011 draft by the Cleveland Brown. He spent the 2011 to 2013 seasons with the Browns, compiling 155 receptions on 312 targets with 8 touchdowns during his three year span with the team. After his release from the Browns, Little had some choice words for Mike Pettine. It was also reported this offseason that Little was facing eviction from his $15,000 per month home in Hollywood Hills, California.

Seventh-round rookie Mario Alford, veteran Brandon Tate and free agent acquisition Denarius Moore would figure to have a leg up on Little to making the final 53-man roster, behind A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu being the top three receivers. Little has done little special teams work in his career, something that is required of a fifth or sixth receiver to be active on gameday.
