The Bengals are having as close to an open competition for the #2 receiver job as you possibly can get. Rookies Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones, inexperienced former undrafted free agent Armon Binns, and Patriots castoff Brandon Tate are all in the running. If you ask the man who they are competing to line up opposite, AJ Green, Mohamed Sanu is the favorite.
Green praised Sanu’s football speed and mentioned that he didn’t understand Sanu’s perceived lack of speed coming out of Rutgers, a reason why he fell to them in the 3rd round. A player the Bengals have compared to TJ Houshmanzadeh, I agree with Green’s scouting report of Sanu and the Cincinnati Enquirer’s prediction that he will win the starting job. The Bengals will make him earn it, however.
