Report: 'Virtually no chance' Sanu stays with Bengals

Change in the Cincinnati Bengals' offense wlikely will go beyond the defection of offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.

Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reported this week that Mohamed Sanu has "virtually no chance" of re-signing with the Bengals, according to multiple sources. Sanu's agent has not been in contact with the Bengals, a good sign the receiver will test the market next month.

Sanu has had his moments in four years in Cincinnati, including a career-high 790 receiving yards and five touchdowns in 2014. Sanu wasn't nearly as effective this past season, unable to score a touchdown in 16 games as the offense became more reliant on tight end Tyler Eifert in addition to Marvin Jones and A.J. Green.

Sanu, 26 should attract plenty of attention in a free-agent market low on wide receiver talent. Reports have connected the former Rutgers standout to the Giants and Browns, where Jackson is now the head coach.

Let's hope nobody messes with Sanu when the phone starts ringing next month.
