Out of the options the Bengals have, I think they should continue to develop Marvin Jones in the role opposite A.J. Green. Orson Charles is also reliable, but his ability to get separation in the secondary is questionable. Plus, Binns just hasn’t had enough playtime to get any chemistry going with Dalton. He’s also not as fast.
Jones doesn’t have that chemistry with Dalton yet either. However, I see a lot more potential in the young receiver. He has the speed to get separation, and the ability to make plays when he needs to.
His number hasn’t been called very often by the offense, and he wasn’t too much of a factor last week against the San Diego Chargers. Then again, he hasn’t had much of a chance.
He just needs time. Coming off an injury, he’ll adjust to the tempo of the NFL quickly, and I look for him to be much more of a factor against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Is he the answer to Cincinnati’s number-two receiver problem? Only time will tell.
