Former Oakland Raider Denarius Moore is looking for a new home and the Cincinnati Bengals could be his opportunity according to a report from Adam Caplan of ESPN.

The Bengals are looking to add a new receiver to increase their depth at the position. Moore is entering his fifth season and trying to return to his 2012 form when he had his best season. He played in 15 games and had 51 receptions for 741 yards and seven touchdowns.

There are a couple things that the Bengals should be carful with when it comes to Moore. First, he has had ball control issues fumbling the ball five times in 142 catches. Second, he has dealt with several injuries, which could cause some issues depth wise if A.J. Green or Marvin Jones goes down again.

The Bengals will need to keep all that in mind while making decisions with who to bring into camp. They just re-signed Brandon Tate yesterday, and bringing in Moore would mean additional competition for the fifth wide receiver spot, which, as of now, would be a battle between Tate, Moore, and Dane Sanzenbacher.
