NFL Rumors: Cincinnati Bengals to make Marvin Jones starting wide receiver?


Playing alongside A.J. Green opens up plenty of opportunities, something Marvin Jones knows quite well.

The young wide receiver posted double digit touchdowns for the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2013 and did so while splitting time with Mohamed Sanu who was rather unimpressive.

Now under the toolage of Hue Jackson, it’s expected the Bengals will move Jones up into the ‘starting’ lineup as the number two wide receiver.

WR Marvin Jones — Earned the chance to be the No. 2 wideout after his play in 2013.

The expected move isn’t exactly shocking given Jones’ skill and play last season, but under a new offensive coordinator we weren’t completely sure of how things would play out.

Jackson is known for his love to run the ball, so the Bengals not be as pass happy as before, though Jones should still see a hefty amount of balls thrown his way given the likely double coverage on Green.

Between the aforementioned Green and Jones, the Bengals are quickly emerging as having one of the most prolific starting wide receiver tandems in the league.
