The Bengals offense was non-existent down the stretch of the 2012 season, and it  will hopefully lead the club to go out and find more playmakers via free agency and the NFL Draft. One of the top playmakers on the market this offseason will be Pittsburgh Steeelers wide receiver Mike Wallace. He’s one of the NFL’s most explosive receivers as he’s averaged 17.2 yards per catch in his four-year career. floated the idea of Wallace signing with the Bengals

"Mike Wallace to the Cincinnati Bengals Embittered with his lack of targets and a big-time contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Wallace could go the revenge-relationship route and sign with the divisional rival Bengals. Wallace’s speed and A.J. Green‘s all-around awesomeness could be a devastating combo for opposing defenses. And let’s not forget Wallace would be able to flaunt his hot new fling twice a year against his former team."

CBS Sports also believes Cincinnati is a possible landing spot

"Cincinnati: The Bengals are expected to have $55 million in cap space, most in the league. But the franchise doesn’t usually make a big splash in free agency. But how would you like to be Andy Dalton and see A.J. Green on one side, Wallace on the other? It’s the kind of bold move that could lift the Bengals to the Super Bowl."
