Bengals beat writer Coley Harvey on WR Mohamed Sanu:
As for what's expected of him, it's this: catch the ball (and maybe throw it a little). Just like the rest of the receivers, the Bengals' focus this season will be on getting the football in as many of their playmakers' hands as possible.
After Sanu had such a promising 2012 season, he ran into a bit of a wall last year. Receivers coach James Urban has said he didn't feel like he used Sanu quite as much or as effectively as he had hoped. That should change this season. It's possible to see Sanu in the slot receiver role if indeed Marvin Jones has leapfrogged him and slipped into the No. 2 receiver's spot. That's something we won't really know until deep into training camp. It could be that coaches decide to keep Jones as the third receiver and to use him more often in the slot than Sanu.
We're expecting Jones to be the team's WR2 in 2014 after OC Hue Jackson mentioned Jones in the same breath as A.J. Green when discussing the team's receiving corps.
