The Bengals have room for one reclamation project at wide receiver, but not two.
After signing Matt Jones this week, Joe Reedy of the Cincincinnat Enquirer writes that any interest in Donte’ Stallworth is gone.
We thought picking up Jones was a worthwhile gamble, but it doesn’t solve the team’s need for a deep threat. The Bengals have very little speed at the position unless Jerome Simpson suddenly earns his way on the field.
Stallworth worked out for the Lions last week and should be able to find a job, but he may have to wait until after the free agent market has settled down in March.
