What’s the Status of the Bengals Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In?

NFL.com has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

With likely a new QB coming to town with the first overall pick, it would be great to see the Bengals get a wide out in free agency.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Bengals receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: Tyler Boyd (90-1,046-5), Auden Tate (40-575-1), Alex Erickson (43-529-0).

With injuries hampering the starters — including A.J. Green, who did not play a snap — throughout the season, it’s not overly surprising that the Bengals’ wide receivers managed only a 47.2 reception percentage on third down (31st in the NFL). Presuming Green returns, the talent potential for having the seven-time Pro Bowler share the field with John Ross and Boyd is very high. But other pieces of the offensive puzzle, including the offensive line and as-yet-unfilled quarterback position, must come together for the receiving corps to really shine.
