The Cincinnati Bengals will have a battle for the fourth wide receiver position coming into camp as they have signed Denarius Moore to a one-year deal according to Adam Schefter.

Denarius Moore comes to the Bengals after spending four years with the Oakland Raiders. He had his best season in 2012 when he went for 51 receptions, 741 yards, and seven touchdowns. His impact on the Raiders diminished in 2014. He started two games and played in ten catching 12 passes for 115 yards and no touchdowns.

The Bengals, who re-signed Brandon Tate last week, will have at least four wide receivers competing for three roster spots, maybe four spots depending on injury. The Bengals carried six wide receivers on their depth chart last season and, with key injuries, needed most of them to help out.

They have Marvin Jones returning and A.J. Green back at full health, so the Bengals should be good to go. Mohamed Sanu is expected to be the third wide receiver and the rest will be a competition between Denarius Moore, Brandon Tate, James Wright, and possibly Dane Sanzenbacher if re-signed. That competition might grow if they decide to draft or sign anybody before training camp.
