Wed, 27 Feb 2013 20:11:09 -0800
Impending free-agent WR Brandon Tate (Bengals) might not be re-signed, as he was too inconsistent as a return man and he struggled as a receiver in 2012. If the team re-signs impending free-agent CB Adam Jones, he'll likely be used as the return man, making Tate's re-signing even less likely.
Wed, 28 Nov 2012 17:20:19 -0800
Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu has emerged as a great red zone target for QB Andy Dalton to take attention away from WR A.J. Green. Three of Sanu's four touchdowns have come with WR Andrew Hawkins (knee) out, and three of Sanu's TDs have come on third downs. Sanu has eight third down catches in his four starts. He has gone ahead of WRs Brandon Tate and Armon Binns on the depth chart. "He's awesome in the red zone," offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. "In zones he has a great feel for finding the holes and man-to-man he's got a big body (6-2, 210) where he can create separation for himself. He's everything we hoped he would be. It just took us too long a time to figure it out I guess."

Cincinnati Bengals WR Armon Binns recorded his first career NFL reception in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. He finished with four catches for 28 yards. WR Brandon Tate had one grab for three yards.
Fantasy Tip: Both players are worth monitoring for fantasy purposes, but they are not worth adding to a roster just yet. The Bengals are looking for a player to step up as a tertiary receiving option to WR A.J. Green and TE Jermaine Gresham, and in Monday's game, that looked to be WR Andrew Hawkins, not Binns or Tate.
Fri, 10 Aug 2012 11:56:05 -0700

Rookie Mohamed Sanu was listed fourth on the depth chart.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said WR Brandon Tate was one of the standout players during workouts this offseason. "He's been one of the best surprises of camp for me," said Gruden. "Last year he came in late (after being acquired on waivers from New England) and was mainly a return guy and our fifth receiver and never really got in the flow with the group at wide receiver. Now I think he's more confident, he sees that he belongs as an NFL wide receiver, and I think the confidence level that he has is showing. He's got all the ability. He runs all of the routes great, he's got great feel, and he's done an outstanding job."

They really have to do their homework and it's hard for young guys to understand that. They've been great and hopefully we just keep working these guys along and bring them along, and hopefully be a threat for us next year," Welker said.
Thu, 17 Mar 2011 11:38:06 -0700

The Patriots will be moving forward without a true No. 1 receiver.
