Two years ago the Bengals fandom had no idea who the number two receiver would be. Cycling receivers left and right in the lineup, Cincinnati has found their guy for the future not named A.J. Green.

Since the start of training camp this past season, the coaching staff credited Jones with his amazing ball skills and coordination tracking the ball. Starting only three games in 2013, Jones still managed to have 51 receptions, 712 receiving yards and ten touchdowns.

He won the Week 8 AFC Offensive Player of the Week after he set a franchise single-game record by catching four touchdowns during the team’s 49-9 win over the New York Jets.

Coming off the bench behind Mohamed Sanu last season, Marvin Jones provided a spark the Bengals haven’t seen since the late Chris Henry was marked as third on the depth chart.

Whether it was carrying the ball, making blocks, catching key third-down passes, or scoring points, Marvin Jones became a focal point for the offense.
