Brandon Tate also a candidate for the Bengals’ #2 receiver job

The Bengals failed to resign their #2 receiver, Jerome Simpson, this offseason as he had been arrested in a drug related incident and was facing league suspension. Simpson is now with the Vikings and will start the season with a 3 game suspension, while the Bengals are seemingly holding open auditions for Simpson’s old role opposite AJ Green.

The Bengals drafted Mohamed Sanu in the 3rd round and Marvin Jones in the 5th round to compete for that job and separate reports have also said that 2011 undrafted free agent Armon Binns and Patriots castoff Brandon Tate are also in the running for that job. That’s 4 players compete for one spot. With Jordan Shipley solidified in the slot, the losers will become nothing more than depth receivers and might not make the final 53 at all, unless the Bengals carry 6 receivers.
