Greg Little provided little to the Bengals offense in his first go with the Cincinnati Bengals. Obviously, they are hoping to add a little competition for the fourth, and maybe fifth, wide receiver position and the Bengals have re-signed Little to enter camp in stripes.
Little had six catches on 12 targets in six appearances before being a healthy scratch late in the season. He is most known for his performance in the Thursday Night Football performance against his former team, the Cleveland Browns, when he head butted K’waun Williams for a 15-yard penalty.
His best performance was in the second game against the Ravens in week eight. He caught three passes for 42 yards. He mostly stood on the side lines or took up a corner on the field but contributed little. He will be competing verses Brandon Tate. Cobi Hamilton, Demarius Moore, and Mario Alford for the final two spots on the Bengals roster at wide receiver.
In a survey on Stripe Hype from yesterday, 67% of readers said that they thought there was a better option out there for the Bengals, 20% said that they should just stand pat on where they stood on wide receivers, and 13% said re-sign him. Although a small sample size, it proved that there are a strong percentage of Bengals fans who think he is wasted money.
Greg Little may be headed to Bengals camp but it could be a different story as to if he would make the final 53-man roster. He will have a lot to prove, but he knows the playbook from last season, which could give him an edge over Moore or Alford, who are new to the Bengals camp. If he does make the final cut, he will need to prove to Bengals fans that he is not just another roster spot being filled, especially after last season.
