Bengals still looking for consistent No. 2 WR


The Cincinnati Bengals are riding high atop the AFC North with one of the top wide receivers in the game, but they have yet to settle in on a No. 2 wide receiver behind star A.J. Green. It won’t be easy for the team to find a reliable No. 2 target, but there have been some flashes.

However, while there have been some positive moments from the team’s back up wide receivers, they still lack a true No. 2 wideout.

“I think all the receivers behind A.J., they’ve all shown flashes of being very good. It’s just we have a lot of guys that are kind of in that mode where a different guy can help us each week, that it might not be the same guy each week,” offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Whether it be Andrew Hawkins, Marvin Jones or Mohamed Sanu, Cincinnati is hoping for some more consistency.

If they can finally find that, then they will be able to watch their passing attack take the step to the next level.

    Why are the Bengals looking for another, they should be looking for another QB who can get the ones they got the ball.
