Bengals sign Greg Little

AP

The Bengals had a few veteran receivers in for workouts on Thursday and one of them emerged with a contract.

Greg Little will be back with the Bengals after being released in February. PFT has learned, via a league source, that Little, who played six games for the Bengals last season and made six catches for 69 yards, has signed a one-year deal with the team. The Bengals placed wide receiver James Wright on injured reserve with a knee injury this week after he passed through waivers unclaimed.

Little entered the league as a 2011 second-round pick of the Browns and spent three seasons in Cleveland. He caught 155 passes during that time, but drops and other mental miscues helped keep him from meeting the expectations for him.

The Bengals have A.J. Green, Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones at the top of the depth chart. Little, Denarius Moore, Brandon Tate and 2015 seventh-rounder Mario Alford will vie for spots behind them.

Santonio Holmes and David Nelson also worked out for the Bengals.

  1. I almost feel bad for the Bengals.

    Not a good signing at all.

    Once Future Hall of Fame Coach Mile Zimmer left your team…

    Every Bengal fan should have realized it was the beginning of the end!

  2. The Bengals have done a very, VERY nice job at building this offense. A lot of it hinges on the seemingly average Andy Dalton, but its the second year in their offensive system and keep in mind the amount of games that AJ Green, Gio Bernard, Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert missed last year. Throw in Jeremy Hill and their solid running game and some good defensive pieces, could be a good recipe. I always had a good impression Denarius Moore, I’d think he’d make a better #4 for them than Little.

  3. Dalton better be prepared for a 5% drop in his completion rate if he throws it Little’s way.

  4. Whew! Bengals fans everywhere are breathing a huge sigh of relief to get this deal done. This was the move they needed to make a deep playoff run.

  5. NOT to say A.J. Green is under-performing… but… to highlight the fact that mike brown pays his WHOLE RECEIVING CORPS LESS than teams with QUALITY #1 and #2 wide receivers pay only the #1 and #2.

    I know Roddy White is in decline… but… he still totals more than any Bengals #2 wide receiver.

  6. Signing four under-performing wide receivers is cheaper than signing two QUALITY wide receivers.
