Bengals sign fourth-rounder Josh Malone

The Bengals had a big draft class this year with 11 players joining the team and they continued making their way through signing them on Wednesday.

The team announced that they have signed fourth-round wide receiver Josh Malone. That brings them up to eight signed picks with Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, Kansas State defensive Jordan Willis and Utah center J.J. Dielman still to go.

Malone joined first-round pick John Ross as new additions to the receiving corps as the Bengals try to upgrade their offensive production over 2016 levels. Malone isn’t quite as fast as Ross, but he averaged over 19 yards a catch at Tennessee last season so big-play potential also helped get him to Cincinnati.

The two rookies join A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd in a receiving corps that the Bengals hope will have a bigger impact as they try to keep their absence from the playoffs to one year.

    Don’t slight Cody Core, he played really well down the stretch in AJ’s absence.

    Malone has skillets for hands and that doesn’t improve at the next level. Doubt he makes it.
