NFL Media's Rand Getlin reported Wednesday that free-agent wideout Brandon LaFell is set to visit Cincy, per a source briefed on his plans.
LaFell was released this month by the Patriots after an underwhelming season that saw him struggle with just 37 catches for 515 yards and the sixth-most drops in the NFL.
If the Bengals sign him, the hope is that LaFell might repeat his handiwork from 2014, when he caught a career-high 74 balls from Tom Brady and nearly crossed the 1,000-yard barrier. The Patriots quarterback repeatedly praised LaFell for being one of the toughest players on the team, but he never matched that play last season.
Other visits we're tracking:
3. Running back Chris Johnson will visit the Miami Dolphins, reported Getlin.
4. Seattle free-agent offensive lineman Russell Okung will visit the Denver Broncos, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported via a source informed of Okung's plans. Rapoport also reported a pay cut for Broncos lineman Ryan Clady is still a possibility.
